By Saint Andrew, here's a common fellow, a stipendiary, with four pounds a year and a livery 
cloak, thinks himself too good to serve Ritt Master Dugald Dalgetty of Drurathwacket, who has 
studied humanity at the Marischal College of Aberdeen, and served half the princes of Europe. — 
Legend of Montrose. 

William's Father, a man always venerable to me, had founded Marischal College, Aberdeen, 
— where for a few, in these stern granite Countries, the Diviner Pursuits are still possible (thank 
God and this Keith) on frugal oatmeaL — Carljrle's Friedrich. 

Why have we not a history of Marischal College and University, or, at least, an Athenae et Fasti 
of that venerable institution ? . . . The roll of the notabilities of Marischal College might seem not 
an insignificant one. At all events, it is the bounden duty of any Anthony Wood that may be living 
now in Aberdeen to do his best to draw it up. . . . For, alas ! the history may now be rounded off 
and complete. There is still a fine granite building called Marischal College, in which a portion of 
the work of the United University is carried on ; but the real antique establishment — Dugald 
Dalgetty's Marischal College and mine — is no longer in rerum natura. — Professor Masson in 
Macmillan's Magazine, February, 1864. 


The first volume of the Fasti Academiae Mariscallanae dealt 
with the Endowments of the College. It was the intention of 
the editor to include in the second volume not merely the Roll 
of Officers, Graduates and Alumni, but such other University 
records as seemed worthy of print. The unexpectedly great 
amount of space occupied by the lists of names — the Fasti proper 
— has, however, made it necessary to postpone selections from 
Faculty Minutes, from Visitation Reports, from Acts of Parlia- 
ment and of Privy Council, from the Register of the Aberdeen 
Town Council, and from other muniments illustrating the history 
of the University. 

The editor desires, meanwhile, to register the sources, 
manuscript and printed, from which he has compiled the lists 
printed in the volume now issued ; and to chronicle the friends 
whose obliging assistance has enabled him to identify so many 
of the persons that these lists include. 

The youngest of the Scottish Universities, Marischal 
College is singular in possessing no continuous record of 
teachers or of students. Their names have had to be 
brought together from printed Theses, from occasional Matri- 
culation rolls, from Chamber Maills accounts, from Diploma 
vouchers, from Presentations to bursaries by Town Council 
and Incorporated Trades, from Grammar School exit lists, 


and from other sources detailed at length below. Yet this 
lack of continuity is, to some extent at least, compensated for 
by the amount of information that can be obtained regarding 
the parentage of the alumni — for bursars from 1619, for all 
students from 1773 — information such as prior to i860 is not 
known to have been recorded in the archives of the Universities 
of St. Andrews, Glasgow, King's College, and Edinburgh.

^ On the fly-leaf of this volume appears the following note in the handwriting of the Rev. 
Peter Colin Campbell, Principal of the University of Aberdeen: — 

" When in Edinburgh attending the General Assembly in May, 1870, I was informed by 
the Lord Clerk Register, the Rt. Honble. Sir William Gibson-Craig, Bart., that this volume 
had been found in the Register Office. I requested that it might be given up to me for the 
University, and, at Sir W. G. C.'s suggestion, embodied that request in a letter to him. This 
letter he forwarded to H.M. Government, and, in accordance with the instructions sent to him, 
he placed the volume in my hands on behalf of the University. Neither Sir W. G. C, nor any 
of the officials of the Register Office, succeeded in ascertaining when and how the volume had 
been brought to Edinburgh, The conjecture that it had been taken possession of by the 
Government in connection with the political troubles of 1715, in which the Earl Marischal 
and the officials of the College were implicated, is obviated by the fact that the volume con- 
tains entries as late as 1721. The most probable conjecture, we concluded, was that it had 
been forwarded to Edinburgh in connection with some legal process in the last century, and 
had not been reclaimed.

^ In not a few instances the editor has been obliged to call in question the identifications 
of the Fasti Eccl. Scot. It must be borne in mind that, when compiling his monumental 
work, Dr. Scott had access neither to Album I. (see footnote on p. viii.) nor to any of the records 
used by the present editor to fill up the gap from 1682-83 to 1699-1700, nor to the Town 
Council Register, where alone, from i6ig to 1773, are entered the names of students' fathers. 
The earlier graduation lists of St. Andrews (not yet printed), of Glasgow (printed in part in 
the Miinimenta), of King's College (printed in part in the Fasti Aberd.), and of Edinburgh 
(printed in 1858 and 1867), have no record of parentage. These appear to have been 
examined by Dr. Scott, as also probably Albums II. -IV. of Marischal College, and his method 
seems to have been to identify A. B., ordained minister of the parish of C. in say 1650 with 
the like named graduate of St. Andrews, Glasgow, King's Coll. or Edinburgh nearest in date 
to 1650 : allowance being made, in doubtful cases, for the proximity of C. to these four 
Universities respectively. It is easy to see how some of these identifications might be upset 
by the discovery of the Marischal registers, with in many cases the parentage of the students.

The manuscript Collections of Professor William Knight, 
partly in the University Library, and partly in the hands of his 
surviving daughter,^ have proved of immense service. Of the 
older College archives Knight had a minute knowledge, and 
from 1 8 10, when he first became associated with the teaching 
staff of the University, until his death in 1844, he lost no 
opportunity of recording every incident bearing upon College 
history. A considerable portion of his Collections had been 
written out by him, for use, it would appear, by the original 
Spalding Club. 

Principal Sir William D. Geddes has furnished many valu- 
able identifications and suggestions. 

The Rev. Stephen Ree, minister of Boharm, has been able 
to supply numerous details regarding the schoolmasters of the 

' Miss Knight has courteously allowed the editor to examine the MS. volumes in her 


district served by the Universities of Aberdeen, a subject of 
which he has made a special study. 

The intimate acquaintance with Aberdeenshire genealogy 
possessed by Surgeon-Colonel William Johnston of Newton 
Dee has contributed much to the accurate identification of 
students at the College during the last hundred years of its 

To Mr. James F. Kellas Johnstone, London, the editor 
is under obligations which he cannot adequately express. Mr. 
Johnstone's extensive knowledge of the men and books of 
Northern Scotland, especially during the seventeenth and 
eighteenth centuries, has been freely drawn upon ; and he has 
grudged neither time nor trouble in examining records and 
verifying references that were inconvenient of access to the 
editor. It may be safely said that there is hardly a page of 
this volume but owes some of its interest to Mr. Johnstone's 
diligence. The unusually complete Index, which will be issued 
to members in a separate form, is due entirely to him. 

These four members of the New Spalding Club have also 
laid the editor under a debt of gratitude by reading all the proof 
sheets of this volume, as they issued from the press. • 

The editor has further to express his indebtedness to Mr. 
A. M. Munro, Town House, Aberdeen, and Mr. R. S. Rait, 
New College, Oxford, for frequent assistance ; to several old 
Marischal College alumni and others, for the use of Class 
Records and for information regarding students ; to the pos- 
sessors of portraits, who have permitted their reproduction in this 
volume; and to Mr. Joseph Ogilvie, LL.D., and the late Mr. 
Alexander Cruickshank, LL.D., who defrayed the cost of the 
photogravures of Dr. James Melvin and Professor John

^ This very scarce volume contains three epigrams by Arthur Johnston, which have 
eluded the notice of the editor of Musa Latina A herd. They run as follows : — 


"Tot modo terrarum dominus, nunc Kethus Olympum 

Possidet et superi jugera vasta soli. 
Marmoreas fugiens et dignas regibus arces, 

Aurea nunc coeli, cum love, tecta colit. 
Et quos audierat saeclis egisse triumphos 

Bis tribus, ingentes hie prope cernit avos. 
Quemque clientelis stipatum vidimus, astra 

Nunc super, aligero cingitur ille choro. 
Et satur ambrosia est et vivit nectare Divum, 

Cui latices tellus ante dapesque dedit. 
Si bona praeteritis confers praesentia, Kethus 

Dum foret in terris, pauper inopsque fuit. 
Si tamen ingenii dotes, animique potentis 

Aurea pensentur munera, dives erat. 


" Ipse tua radians et avita luce coruscus, 

Gentis Hyperboreae gloria, Kethe, jaces. 
Illustris tibi vita fuit, mors aemula vitae est. 

Ilia tuis meritis, conjugis ista nitet. 
Te Dea complexa est morientem mollibus ulnis, 

Fovit et ambrosio frigida coUa sinu : 
Ore legens animam, labris infudit amomum, 

Fixit et Idaliis oscula plena rosis. 
Et sibi sidereos lachrymis suffudit ocellos, 

Et clausit nivea lumina functa manu. 
Si possent gelido Superi succumbere letho, 

Sic ego crediderim Numina velle mori. 

«« ALIUD. 

" Kethe soli coelique decus, non unius uxor 

Virtutis specimen, te moriente, dedit. 
Luminibus lachrymas libavit et oscula labris, 

Dextraque palpebram clausit utramque manus. 
Luminibus luctum, labris testatur amorem, 

Dextra manus fortem monstrat et esse piam.

traits in possession of University. {Diet. Nat. Biog. Jacobite Attempt of 1719,

ac magnanimi herois D. Gulielmi Comitis Marischalli filio primogenito " ; 
those of 1714, " potentissimo heroi comiti Marischallo ". The last of the 
Earls graduated M.A. of his ancestral college in 1712, his younger brother, 
James, afterwards Marshal Keith, taking the same degree three years later : 
infra. As to the present representatives of the Earls Marischal, compare the 
genealogical trees on pp. 4, 87, with the articles, " The heirs of the Keiths," in 
Scottish Notes and Queries for May, 1894, and September, 1896, where many 
authorities are quoted ; and with G. E. C.'s Complete Peerage.) 

On the attainder of the Earls Marischal, their rights of College patronage 
passed to the Crown, but the Commissions of Visitation in 1716 and 1717 
apparently made no provision for the appointment of a Chancellor. In 1727 
we find the College petitioning King George II. to nominate as Chancellor his 
Majesty's second son, William, aged six, who had been created Duke of 
Cumberland a month before the date of the Petition. 

^On 6th January, 1643, George, second Marquis of Huntly, was elected Chancellor of 
King Charles' University (Vol. I., p. 255) ; but the Marischal College members absented 
themselves from the meeting, and refused to recognise the election. (O^. and Grad. of King's 
Coll., p. 4) 


" Unto the King's Most Excellent Majesty, 

" The most humble Petition and Address of the Rector, Principal, Professors 
and Masters of His Majestie's Marischall University of Aberdeen. 

" May it please Your Majestic. 

" We, Your Majestie's most dutyfull and loyal subjects, haveing the great 
honour above all other Universitys in the Nation to be immediately under 
your Royal Patronage, humbly beg leave to represent that this Your Majes- 
tie's University is at great loss by the want of a Chancelour. Wherefor, if it 
be aggreeable to Your Majestie's Royal Pleasure, we earnestly and unani- 
mously intreat that Your Majestie our Royal Patron would be graciously 
pleas'd to nominate and constitute His Royal Highness, William, Duke of 
Cumberland, Chancelour of this Your University ; which will not only signaly 
honour, but greatly tend to the flourishing thereof. And in evidence of our 
hearty concurrence, so farr as we are interested, we have presum'd to trans- 
mitt a most unanimous commission unto His Royal Highness. 

" May God, who has in great mercy to these Kingdoms given Your Majestie 
peaceable possession of the throne of Your Royal Ancestors, greatly prosper 
and long preserve Your Majestie with your Royal Consort our Gracious Queen, 
and all the Royal Branches of Your August Family ; by which, under God, 
the great happyness of these Kingdoms can only be secur'd and transmitted 
to posterity. 

" Given at Your Majestie's College Marischal of Aberdeen, the twenty-eighth 
day of August, in the first year of Your Majestie's Reign." 

" Commission to his highness, William, Duke of Cumberland. 

" We, the Rector, Principal, Professors, and Masters of the Marischal Uni- 
versity of Aberdeen, takeing into our consideration the great loss this University 
is at by the want of a Chancelour, and how much it will tend to the honour 
and flourishing of the same, that some honourable and proper person were 
elected into the said office, we all did and hereby doe unanimously nominate 
and elect His Royal Highness the High and Mighty Prince, William, Duke 
OF Cumberland, Chancelour of this University, which office we most humbly 
and earnestly intreat His Royal Highness may accept of. And by the tenor 
of these presents we declare that His Royal Highness shall from henceforth 
have and enjoy all powers, jurisdiction, and honours which any Chancelour of 
this University by the Foundation Charter had or might in times past have 
enjoy'd and exercis'd. Promisemg all subjection and obedience unto His 
Royal Highness due on our part. In Wittness whereof these present letters 
haveing the strength of a publick instrument are inscrib'd by us at his Majestie's 
Marischall College of Aberdeen, this twenty-ninth day of August, one thousand 
seven hundred and twenty-seven years, and of His Majestie's reign the first 
year. And for further confirmation we have hereunto appended the great seal 
of this University.

The result of this petition is unknown. The Duke became in 1746 Chancellor 
of St. Andrews. Kennedy (Annals 0/ Aberdeen, Vol. II., p. 118) gives the Duke 
of Cumberland as elected Chancellor in 1747, but Kennedy's dates are notori- 
ously inaccurate. See list of Regents, p. 31. 
17 ? Archibald Campbell, Earl of Hay (third Duke of Argyll). 

The date of election is not recorded. The duke, an alumnus of the Univer- 
sities of Glasgow and Utrecht, was created Earl of Hay in 1706, and succeeded 
his brother, John, in the dukedom in 1743. In 1716 he was chosen Chancellor 
of King's College, but " upon weighty motives " did not accept (Off. and 
Grad., p. 5). Kennedy gives John, Duke of Argyll, as Chancellor in 1754, but 
his names are only less inaccurate than his dates. Died 15th April, 1761.

1796. William Eden, first Baron Auckland. 

M.A., Oxon., 1768. Elected 7th November. {Rect. Book : Diploma, £1 is.) 

" Lord Auckland, an English nobleman, who had never even visited Scotland, 
and was not educated there, was chosen Chancellor solely at the instigation of 
the Principal, Dr. Brown, whose patron he was, and who had got acquainted 
with him when holding his Utrecht situation, at which time Auckland was 
ambassador to the States. The proper Chancellor to have been chosen in 
1796 was the Marquis of Huntly, as Professor Copland proposed, and never 
voted for Lord Auckland., In going after Court patronage, the College fell into 
a mistake. All the correspondence passed between the Chancellor and Dr. 
Brown, in letters often not seen by the Faculty. Hence the necessity of

book.'— MtM." (Knight.) Died 28th May, 1814. (Dia. Nat. Biog.)

1598. Peter Blackburn, the elder, minister of Aberdeen, Dean of 
Signs feu charter of date 5th Sept., 1598 (Vol. I., p. 76). 
i6ig. Patrick Dun, doctor of medicine, Rector ; William Forbes, 
doctor of divinity, D. of F. 
Present at visitation of the College, 31st December, when an ordinance was 
made " that the College fees payable by the students to the regents should be 
conform as they were appointed at a visitation in the King's College, viz., 

^ For the duties and method of election of the Rector and Dean of Faculty, see the 
Foundation Charter (Vol. I., pp. 44-58). The Universities (Scotland) Act of 1858, § 10, pro- 
vided that the Rector of the University of Aberdeen should be elected by the matriculated 
students " voting according to the present usage in Marischal College ". There has thus been 
preserved in Aberdeen a closer approximation to early academic usage than in the other Scot- 
tish Universities, for in Aberdeen alone the Rector is still chosen by four procurators, elected 
previously by the Nations. In Glasgow the Nations do not elect procurators, but vote 
directly for the Rector ; in St. Andrews the Nations were abolished by Ordinance No. 4 of 
the 1858 Commission ; in Edinburgh they never existed. 

" The definition of the Nations given in the Charter does not, in some respects, corre- 
spond to what has been long followed in practice. The nation to which foreigners are to be 
assigned is not mentioned ; it has been the custom to add them to the Angusians, or those 
born south of the Cam o' Month. The word diocesis employed in the Charter evidently indi- 
cates the true division. The Abredonensis diocesis is divided into the Marriensis and Buchan- 
ensis. Marriensis has Garioch added to it, and comprehends not only the tract between the 
Dee and the Don, but also Alford, Strathdon, and Garioch, or all to the south of Formartin ; 
it also includes the parishesof Strachan, Banchory-Ternan, Banchory- Devenick, and Maryculter, 
in the county of Kincardine, but in the diocese of Aberdeen. Buchanensis ought to include 
Buchan, Formartin, and Strathbogie, or those parts of the Counties of Aberdeen and Banff 
lying between the Deveron on the West and North, and Mar and Garioch on the South, ex- 
clusive of all that part of Scotland not included in the two foregoing divisions, lying to the 
North of the Mons Grampius (Carn o' Month), which contains the Moraviensis. But as the 
parishes of Huntly, Gartly, Rhynie and Essie, Glass, and Cairnie were not within the diocese 
of Aberdeen, they ought to be included in the Moraviensis ; and Formartin is by custom 
taken in with Mar, Buchan being viewed as having the Ythan for its Southern boundary." 
(Knight, circa 1840.)

of Professors Brown and Lizars, who, when the vote in the Angus Nation was

schel, proffered their votes on the side of the minority, although it never was

" Sir, — I beg to assure you that I am very sensible of the feeling which has 
induced you to propose me as a candidate for the Lord Rectorship of your 
College, and that I feel much beholden to you for that mark of your regard 
and consideration. 

" But, in reply to your note in which you do me the favour to ask my con- 
sent to this nomination, I am constrained to say, without any reservation 
whatever, that I do not aspire to the high honour in question, and that I must 
entreat you to withdraw my name at my express desire. I take the earliest 
opportunity in my power of making this communication to you ; but my 
absence from town for a week past, and my absence from this place during 
this day, have combined to prevent my answering your letter sooner. It was 
forwarded here this morning. I am, Sir, yours faithfully and obliged, 

" Charles Dickens."

" 5 Cheyne Row, Chelsea, 

" London, 22 feby, 1850. 
" Gentlemen, — Your announcement very much surprised me, not surely in 
an unpleasant way, and I beg in the meantime to thank you very cordially, 
you and my other young Friends in Aberdeen, for the honour you are doing 
me. The election to a merely formal office, 1 suppose, may go in this way or 
that, without momentous consequences ; but the fact that ingenuous young 
souls in your University, in poor old Scotland far away, are loyally disposed 
to me, and willing to testify that feeling by such methods as they have — this 
is already a possession, of a valuable and to me almost of an affecting 
nature, which I shall not have to part with. With the election itself I must 
not in the least interfere, for or against. In respect of personally visiting 
Aberdeen, too, I am constrained to say that travelling is at all times very un- 
towardly to me, and that at present there are some special causes rather de- 
taining me here ; — on the whole, that if there be no real duty, but only a formal 
or ceremonial one, to be done in Aberdeen, I had much better not come, but 
that if there do appear some real fraction of duty to be done, in the event 
of my election, I will certainly make an effort to come. More I cannot say at 
present. And so with many thanks and kind regards, I remain, Gentlemen, 

your most obed*

1 6 ? Patrick Gray. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Signs assedations to James Menzies, 4th Sept., 1601 ; 
and to Alexander Molleson, 14th September, 1601. {Btiik of Reg.) ^ Brother 
of Principal Gilbert Gray. (Dedication to Theses of 1673, infra.) 

1602.^ William Forbes. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Stated in Sydserf's Life to have been appointed Pro- 
fessor of Logic (i.e., teacher of the Semi class) soon after his graduation in 
1601, and to have taught for four sessions. Mentioned in Aberdeen Presbytery 
Records, ist November, 1605 ; and in Principal Gilbert Gray's Rental of 1606. 
(Vol. I., p. 107.) Afterwards Principal, p. 28. 

1603. Thomas Reid. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Demits office of teacher in Grammar School on 
appointment as Regent, 12th October, 1603. (T. C. Reg., xli., 415.) After- 
wards Secretary "for the Latine tongue " to James VI., and a benefactor to 
the College Library. (Vol. L, p. 194.) Portrait in possession of the University 
is reproduced in Vol. L, and in the great window, Mitchell Hall, Mar. Coll. 
A detailed list of Reid's writings will be found in the present editor's notice 
in Diet. Nat. Biog. See also Scottish N. and Q., IX., 145, 161. 

^ Three in number by the Foundation Charter (Vol. I. , p. 42) ; a fourth was added in 
1620, when the Principal ceased to teach the highest class (p. 186). Originally the regents 
were professors in the modern sense (p. 64), but this system was abandoned about 1642. (Of. 
Off. 'and Grad., p. 315.) It was, however, resumed in 1753, infra. No record of presentation 
to regencies is extant before 1679 : the earlier names have been collected from various sources, 
and the list is obviously imperfect. Kennedy gives 29 regents, "with the dates of their 
several admissions," from 1593 to 1676, but at least 25 of his 29 dates are wrong ! A table 
showing the sequence of teaching is attempted in the Appendix. 

* When a name is stated to appear anywhere, what is implied is that it is mentioned as 
being that of a Regent. 

^ " [Andrew] Young, having graduated in Edinburgh, had gone to serve as regent in 
Marischal College, which was always a good School of Mathematics. . . . He came back 
to Edinburgh as regent in 1601." Sir Alexander Grant {Story of the Univ. of Edinb., II., 
293), quoting from Professor Chrystal's Inaugural Address. Dr. Chrystal writes that he can- 
not recall his authority for this statement. " Marischal " is probably a slip for " King's ". 
(Cf. Off. and Grad., p. 53.) 



i6 ? Andrew Keith. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Mentioned in Reg. Priv. Coun., Vol. VII., p. 677, 
loth June, 1607. 

16 ? Patrick Dun. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Mentioned, 1610, as Professor of Logic in MS. C 
3. 70, University Library. Probably succeeded Forbes in his chair, as he 
afterwards (1621) did in the Principalship, p. 28, 

16 ? William Gray. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Signs assedation to John Leslie, 13th November, 
1613. (Bulk of Reg.) Bajan, 1605. 

16 ? Peter Blackburn. 

Mentioned in T. C. Reg., xlvii., 487, 15th March, 1616, together with John 
Ross and Adam Reid. Kennedy gives Peter Blackburn, John Row, and David 
Reid as regents in 1593. This is manifestly a group of blunders. (C/. 
Kennedy's MS. Index to the T. C. Reg., s.v. " College ".) Peter Blackburn, 
afterwards Bishop of Aberdeen, signs the Foundation Charter as a witness 
in 1593, and is Dean of Faculty in 1598, p. 10, but there is no proof that 
he acted as Regent. He died 14th June, 1616. Author (ace. to Scott's Fasti) 
of a Treatise against James Gordon the Jesuit. The Regent of 1616 seems to 
have been his son (Spald. Club Misc., Vol. V., p. 140; and Retours of Services 
of Heirs, 17th July, 1616), who appears as a Semi of 1605, and died in 1619. 
(Retours, 30th November, 1619.) 

16 ? Adam Reid. 

Ut supra. Given by Kennedy under 1619, in which year he was promoted 
from a regency to be Minister of Methlic. He was younger brother of Secre- 
tary Reid above mentioned. (Scott's Fasti.) Bajan, 1609. 

16 ? John Ross. 

Ut supra; and signs appointment of a Liddell Bursar, 3rd June, 1616. 
(Buik of Reg.) Semi, 1605. 

1616. John Gordon. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Must have succeeded Blackburn, as (together with 
John Ross and Adam Reid) he signs assedation to Patrick Symmers, December, 
1616. See also letter from the laird of Drum. (Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch., " Bursaries," 
XXIII., I.) Mentioned (with Reid) in precept of warning against Menzies, 
3rd April, 1617 ; and (with Reid and Massie) in decreet against Menzies, 29th 
June, i6ig.' (Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch. Mass II., Nos. 42, 47.) Bajan, 1609. 

16 ? George Chalmers. 

'• Mr. George Chalmers, Minister at Dumbennan, burges of this burght, and 
sumtyme one of the Ministers thairof and regent in the said College." (T. C. 
Reg., xlix., 418, 27th October, 1619.) Kennedy, misinterpreting this entry, 
gives George Chalmers as regent in 1619. It is remarkable that no such name 
occurs in the list of incumbents of Aberdeen charges given in Scott's Fasti. 
(Cf. P. H. Chalmers' Mem. of Information.) 



i6 ? Andrew Massie. 

Given by Kennedy as admitted in 1623, but is mentioned in decreet against 
Menzies, i6ig. Signs as " Logicae Professor " {i.e., teacher of the Semi 
class), two Epitaphs in the Lachrymae sub Obitum Georgii Comitis Mariscalli, 
Abred., 1623 ; and 6th April, 1626 (together with Ogston, Sibbald, and 
Wedderburn), an assedation to David Anderson. {Buik of Reg.) Andrew 
Massie is named as Oeconomus in a Burgh Court Decree of igth February, 
1622. By the Foundation Charter the Oeconomus was an official distinct 
from the Regents. James Forbes of TuUiboy was appointed first Oeconomus, 
i8th June, 1593. (T. C. Reg., xxxiv., 854.) Massie and Sibbald are made 
burgesses, "ex gratia," 25th Oct., 1623. (New Spald. CI. Misc., I.) Bajan, 1610. 

1619. William Ogston. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Appointed in i6ig, as in 1626, when he is 
transferred to the Semi class, it is stated that he has taught the Tertians 
" thir sewin yeeris bygane ". In the latter year (apparently succeeding 
Andrew Massie), he received a presentation to the Logic professor- 
ship, " the key of the whole College and the courss throf verie 
long and thairfoir requyring ane learned diligent and cairfull maister 
to teach the same . . . quhairin if he should be found to be deficient and 
after due admoni^nis not amending then and in that caice the said Mr. 
William to be bound ... to demit the said second class absolutelie and to 
tak him to the third class". (Min. of Admission, 25th October, 1626. Mar. 
Coll. Ch.. Ch. " Professorships," No. i.) Designated " Philosophiae Moralis 
Professor" {i.e., teacher of the Tertian class) on the title-page of his Oratio 
Funebris in Obitum Georgii Mariscalli Comitis, Abred., 1623 ; and 6th April, 
1626, signs the assedation to David Anderson. Promoted to be minister of 
Hailes, 1635. {Hist, of Ogston Families.) Semi, 1605. D.D. 

1620. James Sibbald. 

M.A., 1618. Signs as " Philosophiae Naturalis Professor," an Epitaph in the 
Lachrymae, also the assedation to David Anderson, 1626. The Professor of 
Natural Philosophy taught the Magistrand class, and Sibbald was the first 
holder of the office of fourth regent, instituted ist March, 1620, when the newly 
appointed Principal, William Forbes, was relieved from the duty of teaching. 
Kennedy gives i6ig as the date of Sibbald's appointment, but this is certainly 
wrong. Graduation theses maintained under his presidency are extant for the 
years 1623 (Abd. Univ. Libr.), 1625 (Bodl.), 1626 (Bodl.). In the last of these 
years he was appointed one of the Ministers of Aberdeen. B.D., King's Coll., 
1627 ; D.D., 1628. Sibbald was one of the " Aberdeen Doctors". In addition 
to his graduation theses, he contributed a Sermon to Forbes' Fmierals and 
wrote Diverse Select Sermons, printed posthumously at Aberdeen in 1658. 
(Scott's Fasti ; Forbes' Funerals, ed. 1845.) 
16 ? William Wedderburn. 

Signs as " Graecarum Literarum Professor" {i.e., teacher of the Bajan 



class), verses in the Lachrymae and the Theses of 1623 ; also the assedation 
to David Anderson, 1626. Promoted from a regency to be Minister of Bethelny, 
not later than 1633. (Scott's Fasti.) He was brother of David Wedderburn, 
the Rector of the Grammar School {Abd. and Bff. Coll., p. 60), and 
Alexander Wedderburn. 
1626. John Seton. 

M.A., 1616. Succeeded Sibbald in 1626 (Kennedy says 1636) as Professor of 
Natural Philosophy. As such, signs (together with Gordon, Aidie, and Ray) a 
Rectorial minute, 14th April, 1632 (Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch. " Rectors," 2); and (with 
the same three) is mentioned in a summons raised by Sir A. Irvine of Drum, 1633. 
Graduation theses maintained under his presidency are extant for the years 
1627 (Bodl.), 1630 (Bodl.), 1631 (Abd.), 1634 (Bodl.), 1637 (Bodl.). Promoted 
from a regency to be Minister of Kemnay, not later than 1641. (Scott's 
16 ? Hugh Gordon. 

M.A., 1623. Not in Kennedy's list. Writes assedation to A. Burnet, 12th July, 
1630. {Buik of Reg.) Signs as Professor of Logic the Rectorial minute, and is 
mentioned in summons ut supra. See also Diary of Alexander J affray, p. 15. 
163 ? William Aidie. 

M. A., 1625. Not in Kennedy's list. Succeeded Wedderburn. Signs as Professor 
of Greek the Rectorial minute ; also two Epitaphs in the Lachrymae in Obitum 
Wilhelmi Comitis Marischalli, Abred., 1635. Appears as witness to a Sasine 
in 1644. (Burgh Reg. of Sasims.) 
163 ? John Ray. 

M.A., 1625. Given by Kennedy under year 1641; but signs as Professor of Moral 
Philosophy {i.e., teacher of the tertian class), the Rectorial minute ; also an Epi- 
taph in the second Lachrymae, 1635 ; and a discharge of College accounts, ist 
November, 1648. The Graduation theses of 1643, maintained under his presi- 
dency, are extant in the University Library ; so that ere then the system of 
specialist professors must have been abandoned, and that of circulating regents 
introduced. Editor oi Cicero' s Epistolarum libri IV., Abred., 1630, 1665. " He 
made an excellent funeral Oration on King Charles the Martyr." {Cat. Scot. 
Writ. Spald., IL, 142.) 

163 ? William Blackhall. 

M.A., 1631. Not in Kennedy's list. Signs as Professor of Logic an Epitaph 
in the second Lachrymae, 1635. Evidently succeeded Hugh Gordon. Deposed 
as a Catholic, 1642. (Spald., IL, 102. Gordon's Scots Aff., III., 129.) 
16 ? James Hay. 

Given by Kennedy under year 1636. But Aidie, Blackhall, Ray, and Seton 
were then still in office. Tertian, 1618 [?]. 
16 ? John Menzies. 

Promoted from a regency to the chair of Divinity, infra, and the second 


ministerial charge in Aberdeen, 1649, and to the incumbency of Greyfriars 
Church in the following year. Kennedy gives his name under the year 1633, 
but this cannot be correct, as in 1635-37 ^^^ ^^^^ regencies were undoubtedly 
held by Aidie, Blackball, Ray, and Seton. (Scott's Fasti.) Bajan, 1638 [?]. 
16 ? Andrew Youngson. 

Given by Kennedy as admitted in 1645, but this is certainly wrong, for on 
4th Oct., 1644, " Mr. Andrew Youngson, formerly a Regent in the Mar. Coll.," 
is elected a Regent at King's College. {Off. and Grad., p. 56.) He " afterwards 
became a Papist and Jesuit, and a Professor at Madrid ". (Knight.) He 
must have succeeded either Blackball or Seton. " He wrote De Predestina- 
tione." (Cat. Scot. Writ.) Bajan, 1635. 

164 ? Patrick Sandilands. 

M.A., King's Coll., 1643. Given by Kennedy as admitted in 1646, but the date is 
almost certainly wrong, for on 24th June of that year he is transferred to the 
Regency in King's College, vacated by Youngson, (Off. and Grad.) Afterwards 
Sub-Principal there ; Theses of 1660 (Bodl.). (Morgan's Woodside, p. 159.) 

164 ? Robert Forbes. 

M.A., King's Coll., 1643. Given by Kennedy as admitted in 1656; but signs dis- 
charges of College accounts (together with John Ray, Robert Burnet, and James 
Chalmers), ist November, 1648 ; and is mentioned in Buik of Reg. as having 
charge of Bajan class of 1648-49. His name appears (with those of Andrew 
Cant, Alexander Whyte, and George Meldrum) in sundry charters granted by 
the Caroline University, 1655-58; and (with William Meldrum, George Banner- 
man, and Thomas Paterson) he signs a tack to Marjory Jameson, 26th June, 
1663. (Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch. Mass. XH., 69.) He is named (with the same three) 
in a decreet against Mitchell, 2nd Feb., 1664. On 24th October of that year he 
appears as a Regent at King's College, and is subsequently Canonist there. {Off. 
and Grad., p. 57.) Mar. Coll. Theses, 1656 (Bodl.), 1660 (Abd.) ; King's Coll. 
Theses, 1680, 1684. " He wrote a Logick Course of Philosophy." {Cat. Scot. 

164 ? Robert Burnet. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Signs College accounts, 1648, ut supra. "Continovit 
comoun procurator to Lambes 1650." Bajan, 1637. 

164 ? James Chalmers. 

M.A., King's Coll., 1645. Not in Kennedy's list. Signs College accounts, 
1648, ut supra. This is the James Chalmers stated in Scott's Fasti (HI., 508) 
to have been promoted in 1651 from a Regency in King's College to be 
Minister of New Machar. No such name occurs in the list of Regents of 
King's College. {Off. and Grad., p. 56.) 

164 ? Andrew Cant. 

Given by Kennedy as admitted in 1655 ; but is mentioned in the Buik of Reg. 
as having charge of the Magistrand class in 1649-50 ; and in charters of 1651- 
58. Theses for 1654 (Bodl.), and 1658 (Abd.). " He wrote a Physical Course 
of Philosophy, also De libero arbitrio." (Cat. Scot. Writ.) Promoted from a 


regency to be Minister of Liberton in 1659 (Scott's Fasti), and Principal of the 
University of Edinburgh in 1675 (Grant's Story). This was the son of the 
famous Andrew. He matriculated at Marischal College in 1640, infra. Joseph 
Robertson says of him {Deliciac Litcrariae, p. 25) : " He lived to become a non- 
juring bishop ". But the bishop was a third Andrew, son of the Regent's brother,. 
Alexander. (Grub's Eccl. Hist., III., 387.) 

16 ? Andrew Bimie. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Signs feu charter to Walter Robertson, May, 1651 ; 
and an entry in T. C. Reg., lii., 372, 2nd February, 1653. Named in Accounts 
of 1652-53. Bajan, 1645. 

165 ? Alexander White. 

Given by Kennedy as admitted in 1655 ; but signs Charter to Walter Robert- 
son, 1651, and entry in T. C. Reg., 1653 ; also sundry charters of 1655-58; and 
a list of books added in 1662 {Buik of Reg.). Theses for 1657 (Bodl.). {Gcncal. 
Aut. of James Young, p. 192.) Bajan, 1646. 

165 ? George Meldrum. 

Succeeded Bimie. Signs charters in 1655-58. Theses for 1659 (Abd.). In 
that year he was promoted to be Minister of the second charge in Aberdeen.

Present at Rectorial Election, March, 1665. A George Bennean is (with W. 
Paterson, A. Alexander, and R. Bruce) present at election of a bibliothecar on 
5th March, 1667. (Copy of Min. in Burgh Ch. Ch., "College," C. 7.) The 
name is probably a slip for Bannerman. 
166 ? Thomas Paterson. 

M.A., 1658. Not in Kennedy's list. Signs tack to Marjory Jameson. 
Named in decreet against Mitchell. 
1663. Patrick Strachan. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Presented to a regency in 1663, in succession to 
Robert Forbes, who nevertheless appears as a regent in 1664. Signs demission 
of office, i6th November, 1665, all differences between him and Principal Leslie 
being referred to Archbishop Sharp. (Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch. " Professorships," 


Nos. 4, 7, 8.) On ist August of that year he had been condemned at a Rec- 
torial Court for issuing " heterodox and profane theses . . . qlk became no 
Christiana nor civill mane to mantaine, they altogether reflecting upon the 
fame of the Universitie, and being ane open floodget to murder, drunkenness 
and idolatrie ". (Bulk of Reg.) Bajan, 1657. 

1664. John Gordon. 

M.A., 1658. Not in Kennedy's list. Adm. in Accts., 1664-65. In 1664, 
Patrick Strachan complains that Gordon, " servant to Sir Robert Farquhar," 
has been admitted regent "in lew of the petitioner, being neither cited heard 
nor advertised of ther procedour much less sentenced or censured," and is 
" endeavouring in a most subdolous way to intrude himself in the place whereof 
the petitioner is yet in possession ". (Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch., " Professorships," 
No. 4,) Present at Rectorial election, March, 1665. 

1664. William Paterson. 

Not in Kennedy's list. Adm. in Accts, 1664-65. Present at Rectorial elec- 
tion, March, 1665; and at election of bibliothecar, 5th March, 1667. In that 
year appointed to a regency in Edinburgh. Clerk to the Privy Council, 1679. 
(Dalziel's Hist.) Bajan, 1659. 

166 ? Alexander Alexander.

thecar, 5th March, 1667. Theses for 1669 (Abd.). Present at Rectorial elec- 
tions in March, 1673, and March, 1674, but not 1675. Became Minister of 
Glass, 1679. {Scott's Fasti ; Roger's House of Alexander.) Bajan, 1660. 

166 ? Robert Bruce. 

Given by Kennedy as admitted in i658, but present at election of bibliothe- 
• car, 1667 ; also at Rectorial elections in 1673 and 1674, but not 1675. Pro- 
moted from a regency to be Minister of Old Deer not later than 1676 (Scott's 
Fasti), probably in 1674, for in July of that year his place as a regent had been 
taken by John Farquhar. (Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch. " Librarian ". Cf. Nos. 4 and 6.) 
He is called "late regent" in an Instrument, Seaton divinity student agt. the 
Magistrates, 2nd July, 1674. (Burgh Ch. Ch. "College," C^ 7.) Bajan, 1661. 

1667. Thomas Gray. 

Given by Kennedy as admitted in 1668 ; but is named as teacher of Bajan 
class, 1667, in Buik of Reg. Theses for 1673 (Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch.). He is 
stated in them to be a grandson of Principal Gilbert Gray. He was present at 
the Rectorial election of that year, but not in 1674. It would appear from a 
paper in the Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch. (" Professorships," No. 5) that Gray taught 
the first class for three successive sessions, and thereafter " ascended " in the 
usual manner. The same Thos. Gray, " son to the deceased Provost Gray," 
acted as College Librarian in 1669-73. (T. C. Reg., Iv., 158, 526.) Bajan, 1660. 

1667. Robert Paterson. 

Given by Kennedy under year i66g, but probably succeeded William Pater- 
son in 1667. Teacher of Bajan class, 1671. {Buik of Reg.) Present at Rectorial 


elections, 1673 and 1674. Promoted to the Principalship, p. 28, 20th No- 
vember, 1678, when he was succeeded by Ja^ries Lorimer. Paterson was a 
younger son of John, Bishop of Ross. (Nisbet's Heraldry.) Bajan, 1661. 
16 ? John Lorimer [?J . 

Given by Kennedy under year 1672 ; but this must be a blunder, as Alex- 
ander, Bruce, Gray, and R. Paterson were in office during that year. 

1673. George Peacock. 

Given by Kennedy under year 1675, but seems to have succeeded Gray. 
Present at Rectorial election, March, 1674. Teacher of Bajan class, 1673-74. 
(Bulk of Reg.) Children : James, Mary, Elizabeth. (Poll Book of 1695.) 
Theses, 1689 (Bodl.), 1693 (Bodl.), 1697 (Glasg.), 1714 (Bodl.). Deprived of 
office in the political troubles, 1717, when he was succeeded by Patrick 
Hardie. Bajan, 1666. 

1674. John Farquhar. 

Given by Kennedy under year 1669, but this is manifestly a blunder, as he 
succeeded Robert Bruce, probably in 1674. Present at Rectorial election, 
March, 1675, and (with William Seaton) homologates Paterson's election as 
Librarian, in May of same year. (Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch., " Librarian," No. 9.)

1675. Robert Farquhar. 

Given by Kennedy under year 1676, but signs Charter to Burgh, 9th Sep- 
tember, 1675 (" Mortifications," ii., 13). Succeeded John Farquhar. Present 
at Rectorial elections, 1679 and 1680. Promoted from a regency to be Minister 
of Cullen, 1681 (Scott's Fasti), when he was succeeded by Thomas Burnett 
Semi, 1665. 
1675. John Patton. 

M.A., 1669. Given by Kennedy under year 1676, but signs Charter to Burgh, 

1675. Succeeded William Seaton. Present at Rectorial elections in 1679 and 

1680. Taught Bajan class, 1680-81. Promoted from a regency to be Minister 

of Leochel, 1682 (Scott's Fasti), when he was succeeded by Alexander Litster. 

1679, J^"- ^6. James Lorimer, student of theologie. 

In place of Robert Paterson, promoted to be Principal. Lorimer's is the 
first appointment of a regent recorded in the " Register of presentationes and 
admissiones of all principalis and maisteres ". The letter of presentation by 
George, eighth Earl Marischal, dated 15th January, is engrossed. The ap- 
pointment is " for this present yeir of God underwritten and yeirlie in tyme 
coming during our pleasure and ay and quhill we shall declair his charge

1681, October 27. Thomas Burnet, master of airts. 

In place of Robert Farquhar, demitted. Promoted to a regency in Edin- 
burgh, 1686, as a reward for representing (in Theses printed at Aberdeen in 
that year) the Reformation as a villainous rebellion, and asserting that the 
King of Scotland had the power of making and abrogating laws and imposing 
taxes without the consent of Parliament. In 1690, because of the very same 
Theses, he was deprived of his regency by the Commission of Visitation.

Aberdeen, 27th Jan., 1714, for adultery with Anne Davidson, a married woman. 
Refused to appear, and was pronounced contumacious. On loth November, 
his name was put on the roll of excommunicated persons. (Presb. Min.) 
This seems to have entailed loss of his regency. 

1715, November 30. William Meston. 

M.A., 1698. "Late Governour to the honourable Mr. James Keith brother ger- 
mantothe EarleMarischal." In place of George Keith, "lately removed from the 
said office ". Several of the admitters were absent " by reason of the disorders 
of the times ". Meston gave " a publick oration and a specimen in the Greek 
tongue". Deprived in 1717, he seems never to have actually taught, for in 
session 1715-16 "the CpUedge was separat before the Lawes were read or the 
season of payment conrc" {Coll. Proc. Accts.), and in 1716, no classes assembled; 
but in 1729 he obtained from the Town Council payment of salary for period 
from Whitsunday, 1715, to Martinmas, 1716: ;f82 ids. Scots (T. C. Reg., Ix., 
85). The notice of Meston in Diet. Nat. Biog. is incorrect in several details.

bibliography is attempted. Introduced in AUardyce's Balmoral. 

1717, Sept. 30. Patrick Hardie.

See p. 95. 

1723, September 6. Thomas Haddow, professor of Greek. 

In place of George Cruden, deceased. This is the first mention in the 
Register of a regent allocated to the teaching of Greek. The Parliamentary 
Commission of Visitation appointed in 1690 had in 1700 issued an ordinance 
in the following terms : — 

"At Edinburgh, the i6th day of August, 1700 years, the commissioners ap- 
pointed by act of parliament for visitation of universities, colleges, and schools 


taking to their consideration that it would conduce much to the better learning, 
and for the improvement of the study of the Greek tongue, that the teacher 
of the same in the first of the four classes in use for Greek and philosophy in 
each university and college were fixed, and not ambulatory as now he is ; do 
therefore appoint and ordain that hereafter the said teacher of the Greek 
tongue be fixed, and continue still to teach the same in the said first class to 
all that shall come to learn under him from year to year, as constant master 
of the said Greek language, which he is hereby appointed to begin to teach at 
and after the first day of November through the whole year, untill the rising 
of the class by the ordinary vacation ; so that in all that space he is to teach 
only the Greek grammar and proper Greek authors, without teaching so 
much as any Structura Syllogismi, or any thing else belonging to the course 
of philosophy, which is only to be commenced the next year thereafter ; and 
this act and ordinance to take effect after the first of November next. Likeas, 
for the encouragement of the said fixed teacher of the Greek, it is hereby ap- 
pointed that no scholar bred at schools in Scotland shall be admitted to learn 
philosophy, or any part of the course thereof, in any of the colleges and uni- 
versities, unless that he have learned his Greek, at least for the ordinary year 
under the said fixed Greek master, and report an authentic certification thereon ; 
and this provision to take effect for and after the year 1701, and no sooner. 
And for the better executing this act it is farther enacted, that if there be at 
present any vacancy of any of the four ordinarily called masters or professors 
of philosophy in any of the said colleges and universities, the same shall be 
supplied in the ordinary manner by a fixed Greek master, who is to remain as 
said is, leaving the other three to ascend with their philosophy classes as use 
is ; and where there is no vacancy, the said fixed Greek master is for this time 
to be chosen by the faculty (that is the meeting of the rector, the professors 
and masters of each of the said colleges and universities) out of the masters, 
as the said faculty shall determine, which they are hereby ordained to do be- 
twixt and the first day of October next. And the Greek master that shall be 
chosen hereby is ordained to obey without reclaiming, with this provision 
nevertheless for his encouragement, that it shall be in his option, upon any 
vacancy that happens of any of the said three philosophy masters in his col- 
lege or university, to betake himself to his place without any new trial ; in 
which case the vacancy of the Greek master shall be supplied by one to be 
fixed as above. And the commission ordain letters and charges to be direct 
on this act as effeirs, and that the same be furthwith printed and sent to the 
several universities and colleges, that none may pretend ignorance." 

On 26th February, 1701, the Principal and Regents wrote to the Clerk of the 
Commission : — " We did lykwayes give tymous obedience to the Act for settling 
ane Greek Master in the Colledges, and did nominate and elect Master Alex- 
ander Moir on of the Regents of this Colledge, to be ane fixed Greek Professor 
in all tyme coming, who has accepted that office in this Colledge. We do therfor 
intreat ye will represent this matter of fact to the Visitation, when they do 



take ane revieu of this matter, and show how readie compliance we have given 
heerin." (Records of Visitation in Gen. Reg. Ho.) 

This appointment was sanctioned by the Commission, 14th January, 1703 ; 
but it appears not to have become operative, for the Album shows Alexander 
Moir in charge of the Magistrand class in sessions 1702-3, and 1706-7, as would 
have been the case under the old four-year cycle. When the four new regents 
were appointed in 1717, their commissions were in identical terms, but seem- 
ingly Cruden (whom Haddow is said to succeed) must soon thereafter have 
been set aside for the duties of a Greek chair. The admission on 8th Oct., 
1717, of Matthew McKaile to the Professorship of Medicine (p. 55) he signs 
" Geo. Cruden, P[hilosophiae] P[rofessor] " ; but the admission, on 14th April, 
1721, of George Turnbull to a regency (p. 40) he signs "Geo. Cruden, 
L[iterarum] G[raecarum] P[rofessor] ". If Cruden became Professor of 
Greek soon after 1717, a three-year cycle would have been set up for the other 
three Regents. See " Sequence of the Regents," Appx. 

Haddow must have died soon after admission. He held a certificate " of 
good life and conversation " from Mr. John Cormack, minister of the Gospel, 
St. Andrews. 

1723, December 13. Thomas Blackwell, professor of Greek. 

In place of Haddow, deceased. Became also Principal in 1748, p. 29. 

1724, Oct. 15. Daniel Gordon. 

Student of theology, St. Andrews. In place of Patrick Hardie, deceased. 
Died 1729. 
1727, July 25. William Duff. 

In place of George Turnbull, demitted. Son of Hugh Duff, minister of 
Fearn, Ross-shire (Wimberley's Hosp. of Invss.), and M.A., King's Coll., 1721. 
Theses, 1732 (Aberd.). 

In 1734 Duff had a lawsuit with his colleague, Thomas Blackwell. On Sun- 
day, 7th January, " betwixt the hours of 2 and 3, in the College Church, dur- 
ing Divine Service, he }ostled and pressed violently on Mr. Blackwell". Next 
day, when Blackwell was teaching in the Bajan Class, Duff sent William 
Fowler, sacrist, " to desire him to come out and speak to a gentleman," and 
struck him on the head with a staff which he had provided on purpose, 
" having come without his gown, which he had put off for that effect ". Black- 
well presented a " Complaint and Libell unto the Revd. PrincipW and Masters 
met in faculty," which Duff requested time to answer ; but the latter passed from 
one delay to another, and finally advocated the case to Edinburgh, on the plea 
that the Masters had no jurisdiction, and that two of their number had malice 
against him. It was agreed, however, to submit the matter to the Principal 
and Mr. Forbes, Sheriff Depute of Aberdeen, who settled it by a Decreet- 
Arbitral. A minute of Faculty was prepared in draft, in which Duff was to 
acknowledge the jurisdiction of the College, ask pardon for attacking its privi- 
leges, and receive a rebuke from the Principal. He was at first fully satisfied 



with this, and showed much impatience to have a meeting held, where it 
should be approved ; but on this being done he refused to submit, and insisted 
upon his Bill of Advocation. The outcome of the proceedings has not been 
traced — (Mem. for Duff, 21st February; Pet. of Duff, 24th February ; Answ.for 
Blackwell, 25th February ; Answ.for Prin. and other Masters, 23rd July — printed 
papers in Town House Charter Room). 

At a meeting of Faculty, held on gth February, 1736, Duff is charged with 
neglect of duty and " with quarrelling upon slight and trivial occasions with 
one Master after the other, and raising litigious and expensive lawsuits, and 
with instigating the students to illegal and hurtful proceedings and undutiful 
conduct to their masters ". At Christmas vacation he had to go to Edinburgh, 
and did not return till 6th January (the vacation ending on the ist) ; neglected 
his duty as Hebdomader ; refused to preside at the public disputes ; and on 
3rd February again went to Edinburgh, appointing an assistant without asking 
leave of the College. Blackwell states that he had raised criminal actions 
against all his colleagues, and calls him " that strange unhappy man". 

ist March, 1736. — Duff protests in violent language, styling the minute of gth 
February "a pretended calumnious unsigned lybel," of which a copy was 
refused him. 

loth March, 1737. — At a Rectorial meeting the Principal informs the Court 
that he has, with advice and consent of the Faculty, given to Regent Duff two 
admonitions for neglect of duty and other irregularities. The Court authorise 
the Principal to give him forthwith the third and last admonition, in terms of 
the Foundation Charter. 

At subsequent meetings evidence is given of Duffs non-attendance at Col- 
lege for two years : Drs. Campbell and Glennie, then students, being among 
the witnesses. On 20th January, 1738, sentence of expulsion is formally pro- 
nounced. Duff being " extruded forth and from the said University and Mari- 
schall College, and his said office and employment declared void and vacant 
and at his Majesty's gift and disposal as patron of the foresaid University". 
(Papers in Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch., " Rectors and Rectorial Courts ".) 

Duff went to London, where he published The Case of William Duff, Profes- 
sor of Philosophy iu the Marischal University of Aberdeefi ; Slwwing the Barbarous 
Treatment of an Honest Family, 1739; and A History of Scotland, Vol. I. (all 
pubd.) 1750 (with author's portrait). 
1729, Novemb. 25. Dr. Matthew McKail. 

Previously Professor of Medicine, p. 55. In place of Daniel Gordon, de- 
ceased. Some objection seems to have been taken to the admission of McKail, 
as only three admitters sign. He delivers a discourse " On the connexion and 
difference betwixt the atomic or Copernican and the Newtonian philosophy ". 
Died 1733. 
1734, March 26. Francis Skene. 

Son of George Skene, minister of Kinkell (Skene Memorials). M.A. King's 


Coll., 1721. In place of McKail, pn whose death it had been proposed to 
revert to the plan of the Founder, and assign the three higher classes to par- 
ticular masters, Verner to take the semis, Duff the magistrands, and McKail's 
successor the tertians. But Skene petitioned against this (Min. of 28th June), 
and his objections were sustained. When the new plan was adopted in 1753, 
he was assigned the Semis Class. LL.D., 1766, when he is also made "Pro- 
fessor of Laws" (c/. Min. of 26th Nov., 1760). Died 1775. Portrait in 
possession of University. 
1739, April 10. Alexander Innes. 

Great grandson of David Gregory of Kinnairdie {Off. and Grad., p. 37). M.A., 
1732. Had acted as substitute during William Duff's absence, sessions 1736-7, 
^737"8, 1738-9. After DufTs deposition on 20th January, 1738, the Rector, 
Principal and Masters appear to have pressed Innes' claims on the Chancellor, 
Lord Hay, but without effect until January, 1739, when he recommends them to 
apply to the Duke of Newcastle. This they do, igth January, calling his attention 
to " the melancholy situation of our CoUedge " ; but at the same time resolve 
"to fix a Program to the College and kirk doors [cf. Vol. I., p. 45] within a few 
days in order to secure their privilidges ". The Duke " making farther delays 
and offsets," they resolve, 2nd March, to act on the program, and seek the 
concurrence of the Magistrates in case the election should be called in ques- 
tion. On 19th March, the edict is duly "called," but no candidates appear, 
^ and they intimate to Lord Hay that they have put off the election till loth 
April, hoping to hear from him. On that day, having no letter, they elect 
Mr. Innes. It is claimed that this is competent, from there having been no 
presentation notified, although a year had elapsed since the vacancy had been 
intimated to the Crown, from no answer to letters having been received, from 
the loss sustained by the College in wanting a Regent, and from the terms of the 
Foundation Charter. Lord Hay writes on 23rd April that he had received the 
communication of 7th March on 20th April. " It seems instead of sending it 
by the Post, it came by somebody who took France in his way." He chides 
the Faculty for not transmitting to Government a regular copy of the pro- 
ceedings against Duff, wonders " a learned body did not better apprehend the 
meaning of sucH notification," and send the causes of deposition, instead of 
writing, " in no other stile than if Duff had been dead ". The Crown ought to 
have known the whole, as a mark of respect, the office being one for life. 
Duff, he adds, " has been a considerable time about town making a noise in 
all the offices and in every place where he could have access ". After this 
scolding, Lord Hay becomes kinder, and says that he has taken their part, and 
told everybody that " DufTs long stay in this London and the unaccountable 
turn of his temper made it highly probable that the Faculty had done nothing 
but justice ". Blackwell's reply is a humble palinode, requesting a presentation 
for Innes. It does not appear that this was ever sent. 

We learn from a Memorial to the Barons of the Exchequer that Innes " was 
so generous as to permit the emoluments of the class [1736-39] to go to the 
support of Mr. DufiPs unhappy relinquished family ". He died in 1742. (Coll. 


Min. ; Papers in Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch., '' Rectors " ; A texts, a pastoral to the memory 
of Alexander Innes, Aberd., 1744.)

1735. Had attended some divinity classes, but became a professional author 
in London. Commission dated, like Gerard's, i8th May, 1752, but on ist

Francis Skene, professor of Civil and Natural History (semis). 
William Duncan, professor of Natural Philosophy (tertians). 


I753> Aug. 21. Alexander Gerard, professor of Moral Philosophy and 
Logic (magistrands). 
A programme of the classes as thus arranged appeared in the Aberdeen 
Journal of 2nd Oct. The King's College professors, while adopting the altered 
sequence of subjects, adhered to the old system of circulating regents. This, 
it is understood, was due to the authority of Dr. Thomas Reid, who gave 
it a decided preference. The grounds on which so enlightened a teacher de- 
fended a practice that once extensively prevailed are interesting. The minutes 
embodying them are qubted in the present editor's Arts Curriculum, Aberd., 
1892, p. 13. See aXso Abstract of some orders and statutes of King's College, 
Aberd., 1753.

to the Secretary, but the Commissioners proved to have transmitted their final 
report, and the faculty accordingly advertised the vacancy, and examiners 
were selected — Professor Thomson, Glasgow ; Rev. A. J. Forsyth, Belhelvie ; 
Professors Davidson, Skene, and Knight. Three candidates appeared : 
Thomas Clark, William Henderson, M.A., M.D. (who had acted as 
assistant to Professor French, and was afterwards Lecturer on Materia 
Medica), and William Laing, M.A., M.D. (afterwards Lecturer on Sur- 
gery). It was, however, objected that Clark being only M.D., had not 
undergone the " regular academical education " required by the " deed of 
foundation," and his admission as a candidate was carried only by the casting 
vote of the Principal ; Professors Black, Glennie, Knight and Brown voting 
against him. Prof. Knight thereupon declined to act as Examiner. On the 
conclusion of the examination, which lasted for three days, the examiners 
reported unanimously in favour of Clark. (Lengthy Minutes, 20th Aug. to 12th 
Nov., printed in Appx. to Second Report of 1836-37 Commissioners, pp. 212- 
220.) In session 1842-43, Clark's health gave way, and, excepting a few

" It being suggested to the Faculty that a Medical School on an extended plan, and 
under the patronage of both Universities, might now be established ; they unanimously 
approve of the measure, and desire their Clerk to write a letter to the Principal and Professors 
of King's College, requesting a meeting with them, to take the proposal into consideration 
and, if approved of, to take the necessary steps for carrying it into effect." 

" Marischal College, igth May, 1818. 

"The Report of the Committee of both Colleges relative to the appointment of Medical 
Lecturers having been laid before the Faculty and read, they unanimously approve of the 
same and order it to be recorded in their minutes, whereof the tenor follows : — 

"Aberdeen, May 16, 1818. — At a Meeting of the Committees of King's and Marischal 
Colleges, to arrange a plan for the establishment of a Medical School, held at Marischal 
College, 16th May, the following regulations were suggested, as most consistent with the con- 
stitution of the Colleges, and best adapted to promote the institution, which, under the joint 
patronage of the two Universities, may attain a greater character, and be more extensively 
useful, than it could if only supported by one of them. 

" I. Both Universities to have equal power over the Medical School. 

" 2. Courses of Lectures to be given, during the Winter Session, on the following sub- 
jects : — Anatomy, Animal Economy, Surgery, Practice of Physic, Theory of Physic, Materia 
Medica, Clinical Medicine, and Midwifery, and a course of Lectures on Botany during the 

" 3. Lecturers on these subjects to be appointed or confirmed before the ensuing Session, 
or when the state of the School shall be thought to require this nomination. 

" 4. As the appointment of the Lecturers by a general meeting of both Colleges, having 
no corporate capacity, might not be deemed valid by the separate Faculties, it is proposed that 
the nomination to the Lectureships shall belong alternately to each, neither appointing twice 
successively to the same Lectureship, and that the appointment thus made by one College 
shall be confirmed by the other ; both Faculties entering a regulation in their minutes, binding 
themselves to this mode of alternate nomination and mutual confirmation. 

" 5. Lecturers having been named by Marischal College on Anatomy, Surgery, and 
Materia Medica, before the present plan of joint patronage was thought of, it is recommended 
that these appointments should in the meantime be confirmed by King's College, and that

the first nomination to the vacant Lectureships should proceed from the Faculty of King's 
College, and be confirmed by Marischal College. 

" 6. In case the Professors of Medicine of the Colleges should at any time wish to give 
Courses of Lectures, it will be advisable to reserve the Theory and Practice of Physic for them, 
the choice of either subject lying with the Professor that first undertakes the duty of lecturing. 
The appointment of Lecturers on these subjects may therefore be considered as ad interim. 

" 7. Should any of the Lecturers allow a Session to pass without giving a regular 
Course, his appointment is to be declared void, unless he shall have been prevented from 
doing so by bad health, or such reasons as may be deemed satisfactory by the College with 
which the next nomination to his lectureship lies. 

" 8. After the first nominations, when a vacancy is to be supplied in any of the estab- 
lished Courses, the College whose turn it is shall appoint a Lecturer within six months after 
the vacancy has occurred ; two meetings of the Faculty having been held, at a month's interval, 
to consider the best mode of supplying it, and the claims of different candidates. 

" g. To facilitate the arrangements necessary in opening and conducting the different 
Courses, it is recommended that a Standing Committee be appointed by each of the Faculties, 
to co-operate in superintending and promoting the objects of the Institution ; and that a Report 
of the state of the Medical School be made at least once a year, by this Joint Committee, to 
a General Meeting of the Faculties of both Universities."

which he mistook for applause, made him end 12 March, giving only 58 meet- 
ings, of which only 41 available in a certificate, 17 being examinations. He 
had been absent 27 times, besides raising his fee from 2 to 3 guineas. The 
action before Sheriff Watson amuses the public and frightens him ; he re- 
sumes teaching, gets the Principal to go with him to his class, where Dewar 
blames him in his own presence. In April he terminates, turns restive, and 
sends long letters to the Senatus, wishing to know whether they account his 
course complete now : to which such answers as they deserved were sent.

^ On 4th October, 1838, the Senatus of King's College declined to consent to the appear- 
ance of the advertisement of the classes of the Joint Medical School which had been annually 
sanctioned for the twelve preceding years. This refusal was mainly based on the contention 
that the King's College Senatus should have been consulted as to the amount of accommoda- 
tion allotted to Medical Classes in the new buildings of Marischal College, in terms of Article 
10 in the agreement entered into by the Universities in 1818, as recorded in the Minutes of 
King''s College, on 6th July of that year, viz. : — 

" 10. An equal number of classes to be taught at each University, if required, and deemed 
expedient by either. In the mean time, as a room has been built at Marischal College for the 
Anatomical Lectures, and as great difficulties attending the due supply of preparations, etc., 
would be increased, by changing the place of teaching, the Anatomical Course may be given

on by the Committee." 

This entry did not appear in the corresponding Marischal College Minute of 19th May, 
1818, but was duly intimated by King's College to the Commissioners of 1826-30. {Evidence, 
IV., 180.) 

On 20th November, 1838, Mar. Coll. resolved to enquire of King's Coll. " whether they 
possess any original paper from which the regulations in their minute of 6th July, 1818, were 
copied ". King's Coll, not unnaturally resented this enquiry as equivalent to demanding a 
proof that their records " had not been vitiated ". A copy of the ten regulations in the hand- 
writing of Dr. Skene was produced by King's Coll. ; but " only two gentlemen who had a 
share in the business of this [Marischal] University in iSiS are now alive and their recollec- 
tions do not supply any information respecting the tenth article ". 

On nth April, 1839, the King's Coll. Senatus unanimously resolved " that all connection 
with the Marischal College in reference to the Medical School shall cease from and after the 
close of the Session," it being " inexpedient and even dangerous to maintain any further inter- 
course with Marischal College respecting the Medical School, when the letter and spirit of 
the original agreement have been so palpably violated ". The Mar. Coll. Senatus, while 
denying *' the allegation that they have violated either the letter or the spirit of the original 
agreement," and finding " a much nearer resemblance to a violation of that agreement in the 
refusal by members of King's College or its Senatus to sanction the usual advertisement of 
the Medical Classes," unanimously resolved, on nth July, " that the agreement entered into 
by the two Colleges in 1818 in regard to the Medical School and all the arrangements de- 
pending upon that agreement are terminated ". Extracts from their Records were printed by 
both Colleges.

{Buik of Reg.) " [signed] Ro Paterson, principall." 

In 1697, Main is designated Sacrist. A year after he was appointed

of a bursar of his own kin, the augmentation of the salaries of the Principal 
and Regents, and the reparation of the fabric of the College (Vol. I., p. 328).

portrait by A. D. Reid in possession of University. (See "/o/t»," his pilgrimage 
and his portrait, Aberd., 1892.) The reign of John Cooper and John Colvin 
extended over fifty-four years ; that of John Thomson, John Smith, and 
John Begg, at King's College, over sixty-six years; so that the name John 
came to be regarded as a generic vocative for all college servants. 








1724. Calder.2 

So Knight ; but the entry in the Accounts, " Parchment for Mr Gaidar's 
diploma 12/-," does not seem necessarily to indicate a degree in divinity. 

1733. " Price of a Doctor of Divinity gifted to the College by Principal 
Osborn £20 st." The graduate was " an English Divine ". 
1736. Philip Doddridge. 

The well-known Dissenting minister, Northampton, author of Hymns 
and various theological works. (Diploma voucher of 27th May ; " paid 
for writing, parchment and a box £\ 8s.".) He had D.D. from King's 
College, 5th July, 1737, and observes : — " I am just going to write a letter of 
thanks to the College at Old Aberdeen, who, that my name may not be at all 

^ The earliest form of diploma ran as follows : — 

" Omnibus et Singulis Quorum Interest S. 

'• Quum omnis generis honores eum in finem et primo inventi et postea conlati fuerint, 
ut ingenia hominum excitarent, et bene de Republica seu consulendo- seu agendo mentis 
laborum suorum fructum aliquem redderent : Nos, Gymnasiarcha et Professores Universitatis 
Marischallanae Abredonensis, quibus praeclara in literas merita remari \sic\ atque inventa re- 
munerarier solenne semper fuit, pro comperto habentes, virum pium et probum A. B. magnos in 
sacris Uteris progressus fecisse, eisque praeditum esse moribus qui virum prium et probum de- 
ceant et ornent : Propterea, nos supradictum A. B. ornare, qua potis est, volentes, honoribus 
nostris summis academicis dignum censuimus, atque eundem Sacro-sanctae Theologiae 
Doctorem creavimus et constituimus, sicut per has praesentes doctoratus literas creamus omni- 
bus ubique bonorum artium studiosis obnixe commendatum habemus ut eum humaniter am- 
plecti et benigne promovere dignentur. Quam gratiam oblata ansa libentes et ex animo bene 
faciendo reddimus, nos qui chirographis nostris publicoque universitatis sigillo diploma hocce 
muniendum curavimus.

Minutes — are taken from the Album compiled from all available sources by Professor William 

(81) L 


affected in the dispute between them and the new College about the right of 
conferring degrees, have also sent me a diploma ". (Corresp., III., 275.) 
1736. John Milner. 

Dissenting minister, London ; author of many works. 

Abraham Taylor. 

Dissenting minister, Deptford. (Diploma voucher of 31st July.) 

Alexander Cruden (of the Concordance, then a bookseller in London : see 
Vol. L, p. 444) writes 5th Aug., 1736, to Principal Osborn, 

" I received on the 2d current, Mr Milner's Diploma with a Letter from Mr 
Verner to Dr Anderson and self. The Doctor has prevailed so far as to get 
£1^ for the Diploma, which I received Yesterday, and he thinks he deserves 
for this and all his good services a Couple of Pieces, and had a sort of a pro- 
mise from me to write you so much. . . . Dr. Doddridge was lately in Town 
and he gave me five Guineas as an Acknowledgment for his Diploma. I sug- 
gested to him pretty plainly that it was too little, but he said that he had a 
great Family, etc., and this was all I could get from him. Please to let me 
know whether I shall remit these five Guineas, or if you have occasion to lay 
it out here. Dr Doddridge has promised to be a friend to your College. He 
has ordered me to bind 3 or 4 Volumes of his Sermons in a very handsome 
manner for your Library, which I propose to send by C. Keith. I sent down 
an Attestation of the Revd. Mr Abraham Taylor of Deptford, to obtain the 
Degree of D.D. from you and the College. It is unknown to him. I will en- 
gage that he is worthy of it, for he exceeds all the Dissenting Ministers of my 
acquaintance for Learning, and his character is every way entire. He has been 
Author of several things, particularly 2 vol. in 8vo. agt. Arianism. It is designed 
that a Diploma shall be obtained for Mr Taylor in one or other University. 
I hope no further Delay will be made in this affair. I daresay he will make a 
much more handsome Remembrance to the University than Dr Doddridge 
has done." (Mar. Coll. Ch. Ch., " Correspondence, 8 ".) 

1739, June II. William Braikenridge. 

Vicar of New Church, Isle of Wight. Author of Sermons, Lond., 1764, etc. 
The original attestation in his favour has been preserved : — 
" Viris Hon. Rev. Colendissimis 
Rectori, Decan. Facult., Gymnasiarchae, Professoribus 
Almae Academiae Mariscallanae Universit. Carolinae Abredonensis. 
" Nos chirographis nostris subscribentes, veritati uhice faventes, candide

in so very obliging a manner. In his reflections on it he says : — ' I pray God

receive a degree of D.D. or LL.D. in this University who does not possess decided eminence 
and excellence of a distinctly scientific and literary character, as distinguished from mere 
popular qualifications and social respectability, or excellence of any kind not properly aca- 
demical ". This intimation, however, was withdrawn, 23rd Feb., on the appointment of a 
Committee to consider the question. The Committee seems never to have reported on D.D.

^ The earliest form of diploma ran as follows : —

"The Faculty being duly and met and constitute, compeared Mr James 
Catanach, advocate in Aberdeen, and applyed to them desiring that he might 
be admitted to the tryall and examination of his qualifications as Candidate for 


the degree of Doctor of Laws in this University, and, if found qualifyed, 
craved that he might be honoured with that degree ; Which request the Faculty 
finding highly reasonable, and from their personall acquaintance with him 
being fully satisfied of his moral character, he was examined and tryed ac- 
cordingly by Dr Verner by the appointment of the Faculty, and being found 
truely well qualified in a strict examination, the Faculty unanimously agreed 
to create the said Mr James Catanach Doctor of Laws, and appointed the 
diploma for the said degree to be forthwith extended in due form and signed

" I must beg you would present my most grateful acknowledgments to your

^ See footnote as to honorary degrees, p. 83, 


to confer upon me.* I embrace with so deep and just a sense of their good- 
ness the substance of that honour they do me, that I hope it may plead my 
pardon with them if I do not accept the form. I have been, Sir, for several 
years a member of the University of Cambridge, and formerly (when I had 
some thoughts of the profession) took a Bachelor of Laws degree there ; since 
that time, tho' long qualified by my standing, I have always neglected to finish 
my course, and claim my Doctor's degree. Judge, therefore, whether it will 
not look a slight, and some sort of contempt, if I receive the same degree from 
a Sister University. I certainly would avoid giving any offence to a set of 
men, among whom I have passed so many easy, and I may say, happy hours 
of my life ; yet shall ever retain in my memory the obligations you have laid 
me under, and be proud of my connection with the University of Aberdeen."

1 " There were probably no degrees granted till after 1700 and the appointment of a 
Professor of Medicine. Attestations from two or three physicians continued to be the practice 
for a long time. Cases, &c., sent to the candidate for solution, in several instances. No cer- 
tain account of theses being written or required [See 1784, 1791, 1820]. . . . Till 1794, Nov. 
20, the diploma was granted in the name of the Professor of Medicine, the rest signing it. Pro- 
fessor Stuart introduced a new form in the name of the Principal and Professors." (Knight.) 

The names of the earlier graduates were taken by Professor Knight from entries of 
payments for medical degrees in the College Accounts. It seems not unlikely that certain 
other payments, not explicitly for medical degrees, were really made by M.D.'s. Thus Mr. 
Matthew Mackaile (M.A., 1708, and Professor of Medicine in 1717) pays £4. in 1711 "for 
diploma " ; and in the same year Mr. Gilbert Cuming, and his brother Mr. George Cuming, 
pay £30 los. "for diplomas". So in 1713, Mr. Alex. Lauson ; in 1714, Mr. John Anderson,

[William] Boddum [sic] of Mecklenbergh-Strelitz. 

Drs. Saunders and Leo. N.B. Discovered to be the Empiric Brodum from 
inattention of Dr. Leo. " Dr. Saunders told me that he was deceived by Dr. 
Leo, a Jew living in his neighbourhood, with regard to Brodum on his first 
arrival in London. I believe there was no great deception in the case. At 
least Dr. S. appeared to have given himself no trouble in making the neces- 
sary examination before granting the certificate, wishing to oblige the Jew, 
and caring very little for the reputation of Marischal College. C. S." 

[In 1801, Brodum applied for a new diploma, saying he had lost his former 
one. The College denied that any one had been granted him, the name being 
Boddum in Dr. Donaldson's Catalogue. He recovered his diploma, however, 
and sent it to Mr. Chalmers, printer, his quack medicine vendor, when the 
College had the mortification to see the name properly written, and the di- 
ploma perfectly regular. The opinion of Solicitor-General Blair was taken as 
to the power of the College to degraduate Brodum for " notorious and impu- 
dent quackery, . . . and the immoral tendency of many passages in his vari- 
ous publications ". Mr. Blair held it "to be clear that an Incorporation has 
by law no power to expel its own members. For altho' the admission of a 


member most commonly proceeds upon an act of the incorporated body, yet 
after being so admitted, the privileges which he thereby acquires become a 
matter of civil right or property which cannot be taken from him, except upon 
legal grounds and by the sentence of a competent Court. Universities stand 
indeed upon a footing somewhat different from other Incorporations, in so far 
as the original constitution of the University, whether created by foundation 
charter or otherwise, most commonly delegates to the Rector or some other 
officebearer in the University a jurisdiction over its own members, which im- 
plies a power of expulsion where there is sufficient cause for it. And the 
foundation charter of the Marischal College of Aberdeen seems to bestow upon the 
Rector a power of jurisdiction sufficiently ample for this purpose. Altho' it is 
rather an unfavourable circumstance that no one instance can be found of the 
rectoral jurisdiction having been exercised to the effect of recalling the degree 
of Doctor of Medicine once bestowed, either in the University of Aberdeen, or 
in those of Edinburgh or St. Andrews, which are expressly referred to in the 
charter. . . . The distinction between a Quack, that is to say a person who 
takes it upon him to practise physick without having received a proper educa- 
tion and without being graduated Doctor of Medicine, and a regular Physician 
who has been bred to the business and authorised to practise, is very well 
known. But amongst those who have received the degree of Doctor of 
Medicine from an University entitled to grant such degrees (which is the case 
of Dr. Brodum), I do not know exactly where the line is to be drawn, or what 
degree of ostentation or ignorance is to fix upon a gentleman of this descrip- 
tion the imputation of Quackery, so as to afford a legal ground for depriving 
him of his degree. . . . The memorialists will consider therefore whether, 
under all the circumstances, it may not be most prudent for them to submit

" Regulations with respect to the mode of conferring Medical Degrees. 

" I. No person shall be received as a candidate for the degree of M.D. unless he have 
laid before the Senatus Academicus satisfactory evidence of his possessing a good and re- 
spectable character, and of his having received a liberal education. 

" II. No person shall be received as a candidate for the degree already mentioned until 
he have produced to the Senatus Academicus certificates of his having attended a course of 
lectures in Anatomy, Chemistry, Materia Medica, Practice of Physic and Botany (if he has 
had an opportunity of studying the branch last mentioned) at some University or celebrated 
School, under Professors or Teachers of reputation. 

" III. In every case where the candidate for a degree in Medicine shall happen to be in 
Aberdeen or at a convenient distance from that city, he shall be required to appear before the 
Senatus Academicus, and in their presence be examined by the Medical and other professors 


that the application had taken place before the certifiers could be made ac- 
quainted with the regulations ". (Min.)]

on the different branches of Medical Science, on his knowledge of the Greek and Latin lan-

" IV. When the candidate for a degree in Medicine is so circumstanced, by reason ot 
his distance from Aberdeen, that he cannot appear in person to be examined, he may be 
recommended and attested by two Physicians. In this case, these Physicians must them- 
selves be regular graduates in Medicine ; they must be known either personally or by reputa- 
tion to the Professor of Medicine, or to some of the members of the Faculty ; and they must 
attest that what is contained in the first and second regulations is, in all respects, applicable 
to the Candidate ; that they have examined him on the different branches of Medical Science 
and are satisfied by his answers that his acquirements are such as to entitle him to the degree 
of M.D. ; or in cases where from distance of place such examination cannot be obtained, 
that they have been long personally acquainted with him, and know that his medical education is 
as has been above specified, that he has been for years in established practice as a Physician, 
and in that capacity has rendered himself useful and respectable. 

" V. When the candidate has been settled for years, and still is in respectable medical 
practice, in the East or West Indies or other foreign parts, so that his situation precludes 
his presenting himself for examination, either at Aberdeen or by the attesting physicians ; in 
such cases the attestations shall bear, in the most ample terms, that the candidate's moral 
character is, and his education has been such, as are prescribed in the first and second regula- 
tions ; that his practice has rendered him useful and respectable in his profession ; and that 
the attesters know him to be in all respects worthy of the degree which he solicits. 

"VI. Every Candidate for a Medical degree, if required, shall declare and promise that 
he neither has, nor at any future period of his life shall have, the smallest connection with 
vending, or patronizing in the way of trade, any patent Specifics or Drugs, or what are com- 
monly called Quack Medicines, nor allow his name to be used in any advertisements or publi- 
cations of that nature ; and that before receiving his degree he shall present to the Faculty a 
formal letter to the above purpose. 

" VII. No degree of M.D. shall be granted til! the Senatus Academicus have taken into 
consideration the character and qualifications of the candidate at two different meetings to be 
held at the interval of fourteen days ; except in cases of urgency, which cases shall be deter- 
mined by the Faculty."

1 On 2ist January, 1825, a Sub-Committee, appointed by the Medical Committees of 
King's and Marischal Colleges {supra, p. 66), reported in favour of certain changes in the 
method followed since 1808 in conferring degrees in Medicine. On 7th March the Marischal 
College Senatus approved this report, with some slight modifications, and ordered the new 
regulations to be printed as follows : — 

" I. Every Person offering himself as a Candidate for the degree of M.D., shall, ist, 
produce satisfactory evidence of his possessing a good character, and of his having attained 
the age of twenty-five years ; and, adly, shall lay before the Senatus Academicus Certificates 
of his having obtained the Degree of A.M. in this or some other University, after the usual 
examinations ; of his having attended Courses of Lectures on Anatomy, Surgery, Chemistry, 
Materia Medica, the Theory and Practice of Physic, and Botany, in this Or some other Uni- 
versity, or celebrated School, under Professors or Teachers of reputation ; and of his having 
attended, for three or more years, a Medical Hospital, containing the average number of at 
least eighty Patients. 

" II. After the Senatus Academicus shall have been fully satisfied on the above pre- 
liminary points, the Applicant shall be received as a Candidate for the Degree of M.D. ; and 
shall be required to appear before the Senatus Academicus, during the month of April or 
October ; and in their presence be examined, by the Medical and other Professors, on the 
different branches of Medical Science, — on his knowledge of the Greek and Latin Languages, 
— and on such other branches of Literature as they shall see proper. If fully satisfied with 
the qualifications of the Candidate, the University shall confer on him the Degree which he 

•' III. When an applicant for the degree of M.D. has been settled for ten years as a 
Medical Practitioner, and is still in respectable medical practice in Britain, in the East or 
West Indies, or other Foreign parts, and is entirely precluded by his situation from presenting 
himself for examination ; in such cases, before he be received as a candidate, there shall be 
laid before the Senatus Academicus satisfactory evidence of his having been ten years a Medi- 
cal Practitioner, and of his still continuing to be in respectable medical practice, — of his hav- 
ing obtained the Degree of A.M. in some University, after the usual examinations, — of his

July 31. Richard Carswell. 

Hon. Surgeon, London, " who has greatly distinguished himself by his re- 
searches respecting Pathological Anatomy ... on the motion of Sir James 

having attended the above specified courses of lectures, — and either of his having a Surgeon's 
diploma from the Royal College of Surgeons of London, Edinburgh, Dublin, or Glasgow, or 
of his having been regularly educated in the Medical School of Aberdeen. After the Senatus 
Academicus shall have been fully satisfied on these points, such person may be received as a 
candidate for the degree of M.D., and if he shall then produce attestations from two Phy- 
sicians who are themselves regular graduates in Medicine, and known either personally or by 
reputation to the Professor of Medicine, or to some of the Members of the Senatus, bearing on 
their honour and conscience, that they, from full knowledge, certify the said Candidate to be 
of irreproachable moral character, respectable and useful in his profession, and, in their judg- 
ment, well qualified in every respect to have the highest degree in Medicine conferred on him, 
the University 'may in such circumstances bestow on the candidate that degree. 

•' IV. These regulations are not to be understood as precluding the University from 
conferring Honorary degrees in Medicine on highly distinguished individuals, who cannot be 
expected to comply with them, and whom it would be improper to subject to them ; but in all 
such cases the degree shall be conferred unsolicited and free of expence. 

•' [As the requisition respecting the degree of A.M. might prove injurious to some medical 
students, whose education is now in progress, were it to take effect immediately, it is resolved 
that it shall not come into force till the year 1830.] " 

On 27th April it was unanimously resolved " That the third regulation with respect to 
the mode of conferring Medical degrees, inserted in the Minute of the 7th March, shall be 
rescinded, and that in future every candidate for the Degree of M.D. from this University 
shall be required to appear personally and submit to an examination in presence of the Uni- 

" A mistake," observes Professor Knight, " was soon discovered of a practical kind. 
The age of 25 was allowed to remain, whereas it ought obviously to have been altered, so as 
to agree with that followed by all other Universities of Scotland. This age was also unneces- 
sary, when examination was required. It was still more so, because we required along with 
it the degree of A.M., which Edinburgh, Glasgow and St. Andrews did not [tho' King's Coll. 
did : Off. and Grad., p. 160]. It proved injurious to our own alumni, who went to graduate 
at Edinburgh, after taking A.M. at our strict Examinations in Mar. Coll. : about 10 or 12 
M.D.'s of Edinburgh 1825-35 were alumni of ours. It was injurious to all who went abroad 
after ending their medical education, since they could not be expected to return to Aberdeen 
from situations in distant parts, or to stay in this country till they were 25." 

The personal examination cause prevailed very gradually. Dr. William Cullen, feeling 
the reproach in 1774, drew up a memorial blaming in severe terms the practice of Aberdeen 
and St. Andrews. The Duke of Buccleuch, to whom Cullen submitted this memorial, gave 
it to Adam Smith, who, in a long letter, defended the practice, and contended {ox free trade 
in degrees in a very pleasant way. (Thomson's Life of Culleii, I., 468-72.)

^ On 2ist Jan., 1834, Professor Skene got a committee appointed, consisting of himself, 
Drs. Macrobin and Clark, to frame new regulations for M.D. After much discussion, and 
without the consent of King's College, a set of regulations was approved and printed in 
April, 1838, the age being reduced to 21, but the degree of M.A. being retained. 

2 After the quarrel with King's College in 1839 (supra, p. 69), and the dissolution of the 
Joint Medical School, each University framed new regulations for M.D. For King's Coll., 
see Off. and Grad., p. 160. On igth Dec, 1840, the Marischal College Senatus minute " that 
they have long regarded a high standard of preliminary education as desirable for graduates 
in medicine . . . that they long entertained the hope that a degree in Arts, or a standard in 
merit approaching thereto, as recommended by the Royal Commission of Visitation of 1826- 
30, would ere now have been required in candidates for medical degrees in all the Universities of 
Scotland ; that the University of Old Aberdeen, which at one time required such a standard, 
has recently receded from it ; that the University of St. Andrews has made no approach to 
the proposed standard ; while the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow continue to subject 
candidates to a preliminary examination in Latin only ; and that having had the unanimous 
opinion of their medical professors and lecturers, that so high a standard of preliminary ex- 
amination as is desirable cannot, while other Universities do not concur in it, be maintained 
without serious injury to the medical school of this University — they feel themselves com- 
pelled to adopt a lower standard. . . . Also having before them the unanimous recommenda- 
tion of their medical professors and lecturers in favour of introducing the inferior degree of

Bachelor of Medicine, they approve of the same, with the exception of Dr. Cruickshank, who 
dissents ". 

The regulations approved and printed in 1840, and in force until 1849, were as follows : — 


" I. — Four years of attendance on Medical Classes, of which one year may be passed at 
any recognised Medical School ; but three, at least, must be passed in a University, including 
one, at least, in this University. The attendance, in each year, to embrace not fewer than 
two Medical Classes of six months each ; or one of six months, with two of three months 
each. But it will be held equivalent to one of four years of such attendance in a University, 
1st, in a Master of Arts, to have attended one Medical Class while passing through the Cur- 
riculum of Arts ; or adly, in any Student, to have attended a Medical Class, in each of two 
years, along with Classes in the Curriculum of Arts. The University attendance to include 
the following eight Classes, each for a Course of six months — Anatomy, Practical Ana- 
tomy, Chemistry, Materia Medica, Institutes of Medicine, Surgery, Practice of 
Medicine, Midwifery, and the following three Classes, each for a Course of three months — 
Botany, Practical Chemistry, Medical Jurisprudence. 

" 2. — Eighteen months of attendance on the Medical and Surgical Practice of an Hos- 
pital containing not fewer than Eighty Beds, along with attendance for six months on Lectures 
on Clinical Medicine, and for three months on Lectures on Clinical Surgery. 

"3. — Six months of Compounding and Dispensing of Medicines in the Laboratory of 
an Hospital, or of a Public Dispensary, or of a Licensed General Practitioner, or of a regular 
Dispensing Druggist. 

" 4. — It will be held equivalent to the Curriculum prescribed in the three Regulations 
foregoing, to have obtained, upon examination, a Diploma or a Licence, in Medicine or in 
Surgery, from a University or other Authority established by law within the United Kingdom, 
and to have subsequently attended Medical Classes in this University for one year [altered 
24th September, 1842, to ' during one Winter Session ']. 


"5. — The Examination Terms to be two in each year — the first to commence on the 
20th of April, if a Wednesday, but if not, on the first Wednesday thereafter ; the second on 
the 13th of October, if a Wednesday, but if not, on the first Wednesday thereafter. 

" 6.— Every Candidate to undergo at least three separate Professional Examinations — 
the first Pharmaceutical, the second Surgical, the third Medical — to be conducted partly 
in writing, as well as vivd voce, and partly by demonstration. [Continued on next page.]

" The Third to include the Practice of Medicine, Midwifery, and Medical Jurisprudence. 
" 7. — Every Candidate, not a Master of Arts, must undergo a Preliminary Examination 
on the Latin Language (the Book to be used being Cclsus de Medicind), and on the Etymology 
of such Terms in the Medical Sciences as are derived from the Latin and the Greek. 

" 8. — Any Candidate that so desires shall be admitted to each one, or to any two, of his 
three Professional Examinations, at different Terms ; but not to the First Examination, until 
the beginning of his third year of Medical Classes ; nor to the Second, until the end of his 
third year ; nor to the Third, until the end of his fourth year, and until he be twenty-one years 
of age ; nor shall a greater interval than eighteen months be allowed between two successive 
Professional Examinations, without a full renewal of the previous one or two. The Pre- 
liminary Examination must be passed at the same Term as the First Professional Examination. 
" 9. — In order to be received for Examination, certificates must have been lodged with 
the Professor of Medicine, on the first day of the month of the Examination Term, shewing 
that the Candidate is of the required age, that he is of good moral character, and that he has 
passed through the requisite Course of Professional Education. Along with such Certificates, 
must be lodged a Schedule, filled up in his own handwriting, containing a list of them, and 
specifying such additional branches of Education, professional and general, as he may have

" II. — The Degree of Bachelor of Medicine may be conferred on any Candidate who 
has passed the foregoing Examinations. 

" 12. — The Degree of Doctor of Medicine may be conferred on any Candidate, after 
passing the foregoing Examinations, if not under twenty-two years of age, or on any Candi- 
date who has been at least six months a Bachelor of Medicine of this University. The Can- 
didate, if a Bachelor, shall state, in a written application, what opportunities of professional 
improvement he has enjoyed since he was made Bachelor.

* On 9th Dec, 1848, " in consequence of the number of candidates who have presented 
themselves at this University for Medical Degrees, since the adoption of the present regula- 
tions [of 1840], being so small," a committee was appointed "to consider if they can be so 
modified or altered as to increase the number of Medical Graduates ". As the outcome of a 
Report from this Committee, the Senatus, on 17th March, 1849, adopted a revised set of 
regulations as under. The more important changes are italicised. 


" I. — Four years of attendance on Medical Classes, of which two years may be passed 
at a recognised Medical School ; but two must be passed in a University, and one of them at 
least in this University. The attendance, etc. [as in Regs, of 1840]. In regard to Practical 
Anatomy, every candidate must produce a certificate that he has dissected all the parts of the 
human body. [Continued on next page,]

Tuesday of April. 

" 5. — Every candidate who is not a Master of Arts, nor possessed of a Diploma or a 
Licence in Medicine or in Surgery from any authority established by Law, within the United 
Kingdom, shall undergo a Preliminary Examination on the Latin Language (the book to be 
used being Celsus, ' De Medicina ') ; on the Etymology of such terms in the Medical Sciences 
as are derived from the Latin and the Greek ; and on the elements of Mental Science (the book 
to be used being Abercrombie, ' On the Intellectual Powers '). The Preliminary Examination 
may be undergone at the option of the candidate at any Examination Term after the expiry 
of the First Session of his attendance on Medical Classes. 

" 6.— Every candidate shall undergo two separate Professional Examinations; the first 
on the Theoretical, and the second on the Practical branches of Medical Science, as under ; — 
" First Examination : Anatomy, Physiology, Botany, Chemistry, Materia Medica. 
" Second Examination : Medical Jurisprudence, Midwifery, Surgery, Practice of 

" Physiology will comprehend the Doctrines of Physics illustrative of Animal 
Structure and Function. 
"7.— Any candidate that so desires shall be admitted to the two Professional Examina- 
tions at different terms, viz., to the First Examination at the end of his third year of Medical 
Classes ; and, provided he be twenty-one years of age, to the Second Examination at the end 
of his fourth year. But no longer interval than two years will be allowed to intervene 
between the two Examinations without a full renewal of the previous one. 

" 8. — In order to be received, etc. [practically identical with Reg. 9 of 1840]. 


"9. — It will be held equivalent, etc. [practically identical with Reg. 4 of 1840]. The 
Senatus reserves to itself the right of exempting Medical Practitioners of experience and high 
respectability from residence at the University previous to ExamiHatio7i, 

" 10. — Practitioners who may be exempted from residence shall undergo two separate 
Professional Examinations, which may be taken at the same or at two different terms ; the 
First Examination to include Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology and Therapeutics ; the Second, 
Practice of Medicine, Surgery, Midwifery, and Medical Jurisprudence. And the competency 
of their knowledge in these branches will be tested by examination in the following books, 
viz., Quain's 'Elements of Anatomy,' Carpenter's 'Manual of Physiology,' Williams' 
•Principles of Medicine,' Watson's 'Lectures on the Principles and Practice of Physic,' 
Miller's ' Principles and Practice of Surgery,' Churchill's ' Theory and Practice of Mid-

"II. — The Degree of Bachelor of Medicine may be conferred on any Candidate who 
has passed the prescribed Examinations. 

" 12. — The Degree of Doctor of Medicine may be conferred on any Candidate after 
passing the prescribed Examinations, who is twenty-two years of age, or on any Candidate 
who has been at least twelve months a Bachelor of Medicine of this University. 

" 13. — Graduates who have attended the several Medical Classes in this University, 
will be charged no Graduation Fees ; but from all others the usual Fees will be required." 

On the 23rd Feb., 1850, Prof. Clark moved, that no candidate be admitted to Examina- 
tion "without previous residence here as a Medical Student". This proposal was remitted 
for opinion to the Medical Committee, who reported unfavourably to the change. On 7th 
Oct., 1850, the Senatus, on the recommendation of a Special Committee, approved certain 
alterations on the Regulations of 1849, viz. : — 

" 9 (Second Clause). — The Senatus reserves to itself the right of exempting Medical 
Practitioners of experience and good moral character from residence at the University previous 
to Examination. 

" 10 [Second clause, ' And the competency,' etc., to be deleted], 

"II [Add]. — Practitioners may be admitted without residence to Examination for the 
Degree of M.B., who have held a Diploma or a Licence in Medicine or in Surgery for at least 
fvc years, and who produce satisfactory evidence of good moral character, and of having been 
engaged in practice during that period. 

" 12. — The Degree of M.D. may be conferred on any candidate after passing the pre- 
scribed Examinations, who is twenty-two years of age, or on any candidate who has been 
at least twelve months a Bachelor of Medicine of this University, after residing therein. 
Practitioners may be admitted, without residence, to Examination for the Degree of M.D. who 
have held a Diploma or a Licence in Medicine or in Surgery for at least ten years, and who 
produce satisfactory evidence of good moral character, and of having been engaged in practice 
during that period. Practitioners who have held for at least three years the Degree of M.B., 
obtained without residence, may receive the Degree of M.D. upon producing satisfactory 
evidence of good moral character, and of having been engaged in practice during possession 
of the inferior degree." 

These rules remained in force until 15th April, 1857, when residence for at least one 
winter session was again made compulsory on all candidates. Infra, p. 172.

" Robert Gordon of Straloch, who was the first Master of the liberal arte 
created in the Marishalls College of Aberdeen [presumably in 1597], and one 
of the Cheife Barrons of the name of the noble and ancient families of the 
Gordons in the north part of the Kingdom. He wrote learnedly on the 
Mathematicks, and drew severall geographical maps of almost all the counties 
and shires in the Kingdome of Scotland." (Cat. Scot. Writers.) Born 1580. 
Portrait by Jamesone in Robert Gordon's College, Aberdeen, reproduced in 
this volume. [Diet. Nat. Biog. Spald. Club Misc., I., 29.] 

Another name is preserved in the Town Council Register for 31st July, 
1601 (Vol. XL., p. loi), when Mr. James Robertson, student of 1595-99, 
assigns the arrears of a " pension " of twenty merks granted him by 
Principal Howie. 

Among probable early students of note are Thomas Reid (p. 31) 
and David Wedderburne (p. 63), who were appointed teachers in the 
Grammar School, 6th Feb., 1602; Patrick Dun (pp. 10, 28, 32); Patrick 
Copland, benefactor (Vol. I., p. 160); Thomas Reid's brother. Dr. Alexander 
(Vol. I., pp. 226-236) ; Andrew Ramsay (Vol. I., p. 186), professor of 
divinity, Saumur and Edinburgh, and Latin poet ; and Gilbert Jack, 
professor of philosophy, Leyden (Vorst's Oratio funehris). Arthur Johnston, 
the poet, born circa 1577 {Musa Lat. Aberd., H., xxvii.), and Rector of 
King's College, 1637, had probably studied at the sister University ; and, 
notwithstanding the comments of Mr. Bulloch in his George Jamesone, 
pp. 38-41, there is no proof that the painter attended either college.

' These entries are taken from the original record, which now forms part o( Album I. 
The names, except where otherwise indicated, are autograph. In the MS. no special order 
is at first traceable in the signatures of each year, but, for convenience of reference, it has 
been thought desirable to adopt from the outset the alphabetical arrangement under prenames, 
not under surnames, which afterwards became characteristic of the Marischal College registers. 
The first, undated, group of names appears to include entrants of different years prior to 1605, 
and probably subsequent to 1598, when Gilbert Gray became Principal.

Cal. februarij Anno domini Millesimo sexcentesimo decimoquinto 
[Sess. 1614-15]. 

Cum a Ministris Baliuis et Senatu presente Episcopo eodemque 
domino Cancellario deliberaretur quae post obitum D. Mri Gilberti 
Graij primarij ratio esset iucunda tempore interregni vt sarta 
tecta maneat Academiae disciplina quoad creetur Primarius 
omnium calculis et suffragiis in Primarii locum suffectus est Mr, 
Dauid Vedderburnus interregni huius tempore ad Cal. Augusti 
Anno dni 1615 cumque postulante hoc senatu id oneris suscepisset 
statutum vt in tempus supra prefinitum Primarij partes tum in 
summa classe docenda tum in publica Academiae disciplina pro- 
movenda exequatur eumque vt hoc loco agnoscant et debitam pri- 
mario reverentiam obedientiam et gratitudinem prestent discipuli 
omnes solenni interposito iureiurando promittant. 

Ab iisdem etiam cautum est vt Regentibus debita exhibeatur obedientia 
et reverentia ab omnibus promiscue classibus eoque magis illis 
obsequium prestetur quo maior temporis huius necessitas hoc 

Ab eodem etiam coetu statutum ne cui discipulo arma aut arcum ferre 
aut priuatim vspiam recondere liceat ac ut preceptores per singula 
cubicula attente et diligenter in ea inquirant et si qua ab in- 
quirentibus deprehensa vt non solum iuxta academiae leges delin- 
quens plectatur sed et arma confiscentur sine vlla prorsus 

Statutum etiam ne quis maledicum carmen aut libellum famosum 
conficiat aut confectum conficiendumve promulget vel cum alio 
quoquam recitando legendo aut impertiendo communicet sed 
repertum ita supprimat ne in aliorum manus postea vllatenus 
veniat : qui secus faxit loco autoris ipsius habitum eum iri ac pro- 
inde iisdem poenis quae ipsi maledici carminis artifici debeantur 

Cumque disciplinae neglectus nimis quam invaluerit per hoc temporis 
quo haec statuta decretum ibidem vt tum in has publicis tabulis 
iam insertas tum in reliquas omnes academiae leges discipuli 
omnes solenniter iurent et religiose vt restaurata deinceps disci- 
plinae iam collapsae integritate bonarum literarum studiis morum- 
que probitati suus sit in posterum locus.

3 From the printed Theses of 1625 in the Bodleian Library. Dedicated to Provost Paul 
Menzies, Dr. Wm. Forbes, "rectori magnifico," and Wm. Guild. The Theses for 1624 have 
not been traced, and so with many subsequent years, but there can be little doubt that from 
1622, when Edward Raban began his work in Aberdeen {Off. and Grad., p. 183), down to at 
least 1732, infra, hardly a year passed without a print of Marischal Coll. Theses appearing 
from the local press. Unfortunately not a third of these have survived. The Aberdeen 
University Library possesses only thirteen (1623, 1631, 1643, 1658, 1659, 1660, 1669, 1673, 
1700, 1704, 1708, 1726 and 1732) ; while the Bodleian has fourteen (1625, 1626, 1627, 1630, 
1634, 1637, 1654, 1656, 1657, 1687, 1689, 1693, 1699 and 1714) ; Glasgow University three

certasset disputando, caeterosque scholasticos actus solenniter exercendo) laurea redimitum, 
rude pileoque communibus manumissionis symbolis donandum censuerimus : Nunc vero cum 
de umbra in solem prodire ac palam sui copiam facere in animum induxerit, non possumus 
hujus eruditissimi juvenis naturalem in virtutes propensionem, ac non vulgarem sub Minerva 
profectum, omnibus et singulis ad quos haec pervenerint, non divulgare eumque commendare 
ac quam enixe rogare, ut pro innata sibi virtute, ac ingenito virtutis studio, cum omni qua par 
est benevolentia, accipere, fovere, ac in destinatum provehere portum, non dedignentur.

' From the printed Theses of 1673, Mar. Coll. Charter Chest : a folio broad-sheet printed 
on satin with illuminated border — probably the copy intended for the Earl. The Dedication, 
" Georgio Comiti Mariscallo Patrono et Maecenati suo perpetua fide colendissimo," runs as 
follows : — 

" Nobilissime Comes. Dum Thesibus hisce nostris in publicum prodeuntibus patronum 
quaero, neminem praeter inclytam celsitudinem vestram inter homines reperio, sub cujus patro- 
cinio in lucem emitterentur. Quis quaeso mihi indignetur, quod te unum ex omnibus com- 
pellem ? Quin potius aequissimo jure censebor egisse, quod te tam egregium elegerim 
patronum, prosapia et natalium splendore nobilem, nulli tota Scotia procerum stemmatis 
antiquitate cedentem, a mille namque et pene sexcentis retro annis, in hodiernum usque 
diem, Dei gratia, summorum hujus regni principum cognationibus semper innexus perdurus. 
Certe nobilissimi viri Rob. Kethi praeclara encomia (ob singularem ejus virtutem, qua Camum 
Danorum ducem fudit fugavitque) Annales Scotici non tacent. Neque inclyti ducis Rob. 
Kethi, qui amisso patre, et magno propinquorum numero, in pugna Duplinensi, sumptis 
armis, strenue suorum cladem ultus, Perthum urbem ab hoste insessam cepit, moenia diruit, 
soloque aequavit. Anno Christi 1332. Fragranti etiam memoria est Georgius avus tuus, 
qui Rage lacobo delegatus in Daniam suis splendori et ornamento. At plus tibi laudis ad- 
fert, (Clariss. Maecenas) quod ab iis sis oriundus, qui Mariscalli magistratum decursu con- 
tinue septingentorum annorum, summa cum fide gesserunt. Sed quorsum tuorum majorum 
amore, et virtutibus enumerandis abducor, an quia non est quod de te dicam ? Nequaquam, 
eadem tibi virtus, (Nobiliss. Comes) modo qualia iis tibi pariter contigissent tempora. Tes- 
tantur id, turn eximiae et heroicae admodum illae virtutes (generositas, magnanimitas, 
animi aequitas, constantia, fides) quae tanquam natura in te amicissime con- 

spirare videntur. Tum singularis ilia comitas qua omnes demereris, devincis, omnium bene- 
volentiam amoremque concilias. Modestiam tuam laedere metuerem, si diutius indubitatae 
tuae laudis praeconio immorarer, unum me posse adjicere posse arbitror. Summam esse 
saeculi nostri foelicitatem, quod tu alter Georgius exoriaris qui musas tuas, et causam esse 
quoque mihi specialem, quod rem geram tuis auspiciis, quia sciz, tuus ille magnus avus, D. 
Gilbertum Graium avum meum ejusque fratrem Patricium, adeo humaniter benevoleque ex- 
ceperit et ilium Gymnasiarchae, hunc praeceptoris albo, in celebri tua Academia, inter varios 
quam meritissimos inseruerit, quodque tu me obstringere pergas, dum in eadem Regentis 
fungi officio permittis, quod licet non promerear, ingratus tamen videbor, nisi aliquo argu- 
mento quantumvis exiguo me tibi probarem. Digneris itaque (Nobiliss. Comes) Theses 
hasce nostras nominis tui splendore collustratas, libenti animo suscipere, cum desunt mihi 
alia grati animi specimina, quae tanto reponerem patrono. Vale Nobiliss. Comes. Deus 
op. max. te incolumem diu conservet, ad foelicitatem splendidissimae tuae familiae, Reip. 
utilitatem, et Academiae tuae bonum." 

The " Problemata " appended to Gray's Theses are : — 

" An detur vacuum ? 

" An mundus sit animatus ? .

^ This is the opening entry in Album II. All the entries down to 1770 are in the same 
handwriting. Several of the early lists are obviously copied from the printed Theses (as in 
1704, 1708, 1712, 1721, 1726, 1730, 1732 — still extant), others, according to Knight, "from 
names placed on the panels of the window sides of the College Hall. . . . Each regent re- 
corded [in the Theses] his own class in the Magistrand year, adding to the list all the students 
who had attended any one of the four years." See 1700, p. 275. The graduates are not 
marked " A.M." till 1742. The letter g appended to a student's name (1698-1749) implies 
that he came from the Grammar School (see 1692) ; the numerals i., ii., iii., iv. (1698-1714) imply 
that he paid chamber maills as a student of the first, second, third, or fourth year respectively.

William, ninth Lord Marischal. Lord Keith, who was then a boy of fourteen, about to enter 
College, is addressed by Professor Smith in highly eulogistic terms. " Te ex praenobili ac 
longissima heroum serie natum, ad maxima destinasse videtur naturae Author, qui te vultu 
pulcherrimo, corpore vegeto et decoro, animo erecto, et vivaci donavit ingenio. Et tu solicita

" Candidati," those " qui idem stadium philosophicum cum illis ingressi sed curriculum

" Musarum Suarum Fautori & Patrono, omni Honore & observanti4 semper Colendo.

" Mlhi non diu deliberandum fuit, cui decermina haec Philosophica nuncuparem, cui- 
nam enim debentur, nisi Tibi Nobilissimo Comiti Marischallo. Tibi enim ac lllustrissimae 
Tuas Familise, omnibus Gratitudinis & Humillimi obsequii vinculis, me astriftum libenter 
agnosco : quod enim in Album Professorum Inclytae Tuse Academiae Cooptatus fuerim, ubi 
quamplurima Vitae hujus commoda, multos per annos sum naftus : post Deum Op. Max. Avo 
Tuo Nobilissimae Memoria;, & lllustrissimae Familiae MARiscHALLANiE unice debeo. Urbs

Centurias enarrandam, in Heroicam etiam & invidiam Magnanimitatem, Progenitorum 
Tuorum Nobilium, & in Regem fidem intemeratam : sed ciim publici Regni Annales, haec

^ In session 1772-73 the records in Album II. become much fuller, the parentage of the 
students being given. The members of the Class of 1769-73 are entered only as magistrands ; 
those of 1770-74 only as tertians and as magistrands ; of 1771-75 only as semis, as tertians and 
as magistrands ; of 1772-76 only as bajans and as magistrands ; of 1773-77 only as bajans, as 
tertians and as magistrands. In the Class of 1774-78 and in all later classes, the records of 
the bajans, semis, tertians, and magistrands are practically complete. To obviate undue re- 
petition, a student's name is printed only once for any Class, and to it are suffixed the letters 
b, s, t, m, and A.M., according as the Album shows him to have been a bajan, semi, tertian 
or magistrand of that Class, or to have graduated. Occasionally a student, entering College 
with a certain Class, pretermits attendance for a session or more, and reappears as a member 
of a later Class. The names of the bajans of a Class are printed first in the usual 
alphabetical order of prenames. Then follow the additional semis, the additional tertians and 
the additional magistrands, each forming a separate alphabetical arrangement, and having 
suffixed figures and letters with the usual significance. From 1772 to 1787 the entries in the 
Album are almost always holograph of the students. (See details in Preface.) The names 
of Honorary Masters of Arts are added from the Minutes and Accounts.

* The names of the semis of 1774-75 are not recorded. The Album list of tertians of 
1775-76 is imperfect. The entries in brackets [<] are taken from the signatures appended to a 
letter addressed to Professor Patrick Copland by the members of his first class, which is other- 
wise of interest as fixing the date when Latin ceased to be used colloquially in the College. 

" Hond. Sir, 

" Uncertain whether at the coming public examination you propose to examine 
the students of this class in the Latin language, or to deviate from a custom which we appre- 
hend has not many cogent reasons to support it, we beg leave respectfully to lay before you our 
sentiments on this subject, hoping you will condescend to consider and (should it appear 
reasonable) comply with the subsequent request. We beg leave to observe that speaking 
Latin is not commonly considered as a necessary branch of education ; we are, indeed, in- 
structed to read and write that language with propriety ; but to speak it, and that fluently, 
would be a very difficult attainment, a faculty of no material use, and what we may venture 
to assert very few are possessed of. The public examination, we apprehend, is intended to 
prove what proficiency we have made in Natural Philosophy, not in the Latin Tongue : would 
it not then be unjust that by reason of an inferior degree of knowledge in that language, or 
probably from an accidental want of expression, any one of us should incur the reproach of 
ignorance and inattention, when possibly that very person may have applied himself most 
diligently to the subject we have been studying ? In fine, that the possibility of this and other 
disagreeable consequences may be removed, and that this class may not labour under a dis- 
advantage from which every other is now exempt. With due deference to your superior 
judgment, we make this unanimous request that we may be examined in no other than our 
native language ; and in return for this condescension we hope to evince that the care and 
attention you have bestowed in instructing us have not been ineffectual." 

The " public examination " referred to was not the graduation examination, for some 
account of which see infra, 1821-25.

* In the latter half of the eighteenth century the degree examinations had become alto- 
gether farcical. " They consisted of a series of Latin questions in Logic and Rhetoric, intro- 
duced by Dr. Beattie about 1765 or later, when public laureations were discontinued. The 
same set answered for all years : the Professor of Moral Philosophy dictating copies of both 
questions and answers to the candidates, hearing them recite by rote the answers, and then 
hearing them a second time recite the same in presence of the Faculty. This plan, by which 
no one could possibly be rejected, continued till 1824. . . . The innovation of Dr. Beattie 
was, doubtless, partly sanctioned by the still older custom of giving assistance to the graduates 
in their themes and declamations; but it had long ere 1824 become a great nuisance and dis-

grace. And, as if to sanction such a fraud on the College and the public, the words of the 
diploma remained unaltered, ' ingenii sui ac eruditionis luculento specimine edito,' which be- 
came an obvious untruth " (Knight's MSS.). 

On 7th March, 1825, the Senatus, " being of opinion that some alteration should be made," 
enjoined each Professor to examine the candidates in the last week of the Session, " at what- 
ever hours he shall find most convenient and in the manner which he himself approves " : on 
the day of graduation the Professor of Moral Philosophy to examine " in the manner which 
he approves, on which occasion also the Principal may, if he chooses, put such questions as 
he shall think fit. . . . Due allowance to be made for the short notice which can now be 
given to the candidates " (Mm.). 

" We were glad," says Knight, " to get rid of the abuse of the last 50 years. There 
were 31 candidates; of whom 5 were rejected for answering not one word. But, to the 
astonishment of all, Dr. Glennie held his examination, in the old mode, by the old Latin ques- 
tions : thus tying the living to the dead. For the rejected students pled afterwards that they 
answered all his questions as well as any others who passed ! Three of the five presented a 
memorial to the Rectorial Court of Hume."
